The Regional Municipalities of Peel and Halton are conducting a Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for improvements to Winston Churchill Boulevard from Highway 401 north to Embleton Road / 5 Side Road (see map). Winston Churchill Boulevard is a north-south arterial road and forms the boundary between the City of Brampton and the Town of Halton Hills. The study will examine the need and justification, as well as feasibility for improvements, including widening, changes to road and intersection geometrics and pavement rehabilitation on Winston Churchill Boulevard to address short and long term issues related to planned future growth; operational and servicing requirements; and road link capacity limitations. The study will also review opportunities to better facilitate public transit and active transportation.
The study is being conducted in accordance with the approved requirements for a Schedule ‘C’ project as described in the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class EA document (as amended 2007 and 2011). A key component of the study is consultation with interested stakeholders (public, landowners and agencies). Two Public Information Centres (PICs) will be held throughout the Study to provide interested stakeholders with an update, as well as an opportunity to provide comments.
The purpose of this Notice is to invite you to attend the first PIC, which has been arranged to present existing conditions and a problem statement to address transportation issues along Winston Churchill Boulevard, as well as solicit input and feedback from participants. Representatives from both Regions and the Consultant will be present at the PIC to address questions and comments regarding the study. Anyone with an interest in the study is invited to attend and participate. If you cannot attend and would like to provide comments, please forward them by November 5, 2015 to the project team. Following the PIC, the study findings will be reviewed in light of comments received and the preferred solution will be confirmed or modified as necessary. The second PIC will be held in Spring 2016.
