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 (see 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 alternatives for widening and intersection improvements to Mayfield Road to address short and long term issues related to planned future growth up to 2031. The study will review opportunities to facilitate the movement of vehicles, transit, goods movement, walking and cycling.
The 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, and,
- the identification of reasonable means to mitigate any adverse impacts
Public consultation is important to the success of this study. We plan to hold two Public Information Centres (PICs) during the study. The first 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 PICs will be provided at the appropriate time by means of a similar advertisement and study newsletters. Upon completion of the study, an Environmental Study 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.
