The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment Study for the Queen Elizabeth Way from the north end of the Burlington Skyway to Guelph Line, and Highway 403 from QEW to Grindstone Creek, in the City of Burlington. The study area is shown on the map below.
The objectives of the study are to produce alternatives for:
- Improvements to the QEW and Highway 403 through the Freeman Interchange;
- Rehabilitation/widening/replacement of bridges in the study area;
- Drainage improvements;
- Illumination improvements;
- Preparing concept designs for a new transitway from west of Brant Street on the 407 ETR and connecting to the Aldershot GO Station; and,
- A carpool lot near the Plains / Fairview Interchange.
The public is encouraged to review the project website and submit any comments. The website will be updated regularly to provide information on events including the Public Information Centres, and project documentation.
The project team will have a pop-up style booth at local community events. Look for the booth at the Burlington Mall Farmer’s Market located at Prospect Street and Guelph Line on Wednesday, August 16th.
An additional Public Information Centre is anticipated to occur in fall of 2017. The project was initiated in Spring 2017 and study completion is anticipated in Winter 2019.
