The Region of Peel has completed the Schedule "C" Municipal Class Environmental Assessment study for the improvements to Mayfield Road from Airport Road to Coleraine Drive, an approximate distance of 7 kilometres, in the Region of Peel at the municipal boundary to the City of Brampton and the Town of Caledon (study area is shown on the map).
The project team received input from interested stakeholders, the public and agencies and at two Public Information Centres. The team evaluated various road improvement alternatives and assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposed improvements and developed reasonable means to mitigate any potential adverse impacts.
Key Elements of the Recommended Design
The study recommends:
- The phased widening of Mayfield Road from 2 lanes to 6 lanes as follows:
- 2 lanes to 4 lanes from Airport Road to Coleraine Drive by 2021;
- 4 lanes to 6 lanes from Airport Road to future A2 Arterial Road by 2031
- Intersection improvements, transit facilities, a sidewalk and multi-use trail.
