McLaughlin Road Environmental Assessment Class Study

The City has formally withdrawn its Notice of Study Completion for the Environmental Assessment Class Study including preliminary design for the section of McLaughlin Road from Bristol Road West to Britannia Road West.

This project followed the planning and design process for ‘Schedule C’ projects as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association “Municipal Class Environmental Assessment”, (October 2000, as amended in 2011) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

The study was undertaken to investigate the need for additional north-south capacity and traffic management improvements along this section of McLaughlin Road, while taking into consideration the Scenic Route designation, adjacent land use, and City plans for a cycling route and streetscape improvement opportunities. It followed a comprehensive, sound and open planning process with three formal public meetings (January 29, 2013; March 5, 2014; and May 9, 2015) to discuss the multi-modal transportation needs of the corridor.

On January 14, 2016, the City of Mississauga issued the Notice of Study Completion for the review of the final Environmental Study Report (ESR). On Wednesday, February 24, 2016, a resolution was passed by City Council indicating that the McLaughlin Road improvements project, from Bristol Road West to Britannia Road West, be removed from the City’s Capital Program for the lifespan of the Class EA documentation. As a result, the City is formally withdrawing its Notice of Study Completion for the Class EA Study.
