Welland - Environmental Assessment of Regional Road 27 (Riverside Drive)

Niagara Region has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for road reconstruction, intersection improvements and upgrades to the water and storm sewer infrastructure along Regional Road 27 (Riverside Drive) from Regional Road 29 (Lincoln Street) to Regional Road 54 (Prince Charles Drive) in the City of Welland. The study is being undertaken to address existing road conditions, traffic performance, pedestrian and cycling facilities and underground infrastructure. In developing recommendations for the corridor, all reasonable alternatives will be considered to minimize impact to adjacent residents and the surrounding environment.

The project will follow Schedule “B” of the Municipal Class EA (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. As a key element of the EA planning process, public, stakeholder and technical agency input will be sought throughout the study. At this time, it is anticipated that a minimum of (1) Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held to share project details and progress with the public. Information regarding the PIC will be advertised to the public and a Project File will be prepared and placed on the public record for 30 days for public review and comment.
