Notice of Public Information Centre #1 Class Environmental Assessment Ward Street

Posted on Friday February 09, 2024

The County of Peterborough has initiated an Environmental Assessment (EA) to study alternatives for the reconstruction of Ward Street (County Road 18) in the settlement area of Bridgenorth in accordance with the County of Peterborough’s Transportation Master Plan. The project is being planned as a Schedule ‘C’ Class EA in accordance with the MCEA. The study area includes Ward Street (County Road 18) from Champlain Road to the James Gifford Causeway (County Road 14).

The objective of the project is to enhance traffic capacity and optimize traffic circulation along the Ward Street (CR18) corridor for the short to medium term horizon. The project will also consider active transportation opportunities in the community and provide space within the corridor for implementation of the Township Community Improvement Plans.

You are invited to the first of two planned Public Information Centre Meetings scheduled for the following date/time:

Tuesday, February 20, 2024, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Bridgenorth Community Hall
836 Charles Street, Bridgenorth

There is an opportunity at any time during the EA process for interested persons to provide comments. Any comments received pertaining to the study will be collected under the Environmental Assessment Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.
