The Region of Peel has initiated a Schedule ‘B’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class EA process for improvements to the intersection of Derry Road and Argentia Road in the City of Mississauga. The approximate limits of the project area are illustrated on the map.
Argentia Road is classified as a local arterial road and Derry Road is an east-west regional arterial road.
The study will examine the need and feasibility for improvements to the intersection of Derry Road and Argentia Road to address short and long term issues related to planned future growth, road design and function up to 2031. The study will review opportunities to facilitate the movement of vehicles, transit, goods movement, walking and cycling.
The Municipal Class EA process will include:
- public and agency consultation
- an evaluation of road improvement alternatives
- an assessment of the possible environmental effects of the improvements
- the identification of reasonable means to mitigate any adverse impacts
Public consultation is important to the success of this study. A Public Information Centre (PIC) is planned to be held during the study. This PIC will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to meet the project team, and:
- obtain background information on the study and review the study scope
- discuss issues related to the project, including alternative solutions, environmental considerations and an evaluation criteria
Notification of the PIC will be provided at the appropriate time by means of a similar advertisement and study newsletters. Upon completion of the study, a Project File Report will be submitted to the Ministry of the Environment and other key agencies and made available for public review for a period of 30 days.
