NOTICE OF PROJECT CHANGE AND PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE (PIC) No. 2
Rehabilitation of the Long Point Causeway from Lakeshore Road to Erie Boulevard, including the replacement of the Long point causeway Bridge over Big Creek
The Norfolk County and their consultant Parsons Inc., is currently undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the rehabilitation of the Long Point Causeway, from Lakeshore Road to Erie Boulevard, as well as the replacement of the Long Point Causeway Bridge over Big Creek. The study is being undertaken to address deteriorating road and bridge conditions, as well as transportation needs along the Causeway.
Initially, this study was completed as a Schedule ‘B’ project under the Municipal Class EA (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015). A Notice of Study Completion was issued late August 2018, notifying of the 30-day public review period for the Project File Report. The project value exceeded that which could be considered as a Schedule B. In consultation with the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP), additional steps were identified for completion of the project as a Schedule C. Consequently, the Notice of Completion is being withdrawn and the project team will be undertaking additional work to comply with the process for a Schedule ‘C’ project. This includes an additional PIC, which is scheduled for:
Date: Thursday, January 17, 2019
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Port Rowan Community Centre
14 College Avenue, Port Rowan
The PIC will be held as a drop-in center where attendees can freely browse the display boards, which will be used to present and obtain feedback on:
- The Municipal Class EA planning process;
- Alternative solutions and design concepts;
- Recommended solutions.
Following the PIC, the recommended solution(s) developed for the corridor will be confirmed in consideration of the comments received. For more information on the project, or if you wish to be added to the project mailing list, please contact either of the following project team members:
