MTO has released a Notice of Public Information Centre (PIC) #1 for the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the improvements to Merritt Road and Rice Road due to planned developments in the Town of Pelham, the City of Thorold and the City of Welland.
Building on the recommendations of the Niagara Region’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP), the Niagara Region has retained Wood to undertake a Schedule ‘C’ Class EA to identify an implementation strategy for the transportation infrastructure requirements for Merritt Road and Rice Road. The EA study aims to reimagine the two roadways to meet the future needs of the surrounding community for all road users. The study will address active transportation needs by providing dedicated pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure that is safe, attractive, and conform to a complete streets approach.
The purpose of the first PIC is to share information about the project background, Class EA Study process, the problem to be addressed by this study, and obtain preliminary input from the public for consideration into the Study process. The PIC #1 will be held in an online format. Please refer to the attached notice for details on how to participate in this PIC.
