Notice of Public Information Centre #2: Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study
Notice of Public Information Centre #2:
Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study
Dufferin County Road 109/ 2nd Line Realignment, Dufferin County
Dufferin County retained WSP Canada Inc. to undertake the Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study to consider potential solutions to realign Dufferin County Road 109 and 2nd Line (Amaranth). 2nd Line is proposed to be realigned as the fourth leg of the Dufferin County Road 109 and Dufferin County Road 3 intersection. This realignment could precipitate a domino effect of impacting other intersections, namely Dufferin County Road 3 and Dufferin County Road 23, which is less than 100m south of the Dufferin County Road 109 and Dufferin County Road 3 intersection. The project will look to better understand the broader traffic impacts of the realignment and to confirm the best solution(s) for the study area.
This MCEA process is following the planning and design process for Schedule ‘C’ projects as described in the MCEA Document (October 2000 as amended in 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2023), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. As part of this process, two public events are planned in the study. The first of the public events was held in December 2022 and the second event is presented in this Notice. Once the study is complete, an Environmental Study Report (ESR) will be prepared and filed for a 30-day comment period. A Notice of Completion will be published in local newspapers and sent to the project mailing list to advise the public of the ESR comment period.
