The Region of Peel has initiated a Schedule 'C' Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association's Municipal Class EA process for the widening of Mayfield Road to six lanes from Chinguacousy Road to Winston Churchill Boulevard. The approximate limits of the project area are illustrated on the map.
Mayfield Road is an east-west arterial road and forms the boundary between the City of Brampton and the Town of Caledon. Winston Churchill Boulevard forms the boundary between the Region of Peel and Region of Halton.
The study will examine the need and feasibility for improvements to Mayfield Road to address the 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 Class EA process includes:
- public and agency consultation;
- an evaluation of road improvement alternatives;
- an assessment of the possible environmental effects of the improvements; and,
- the identification of reasonable means to mitigate any adverse impacts.

Two Public Information Centres (PICs) are planned for this study. The first PIC will use an informal drop-in centre format with display boards to present the study background information including:
- a problem statement;
