Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study Lakeshore Road West Improvements (Mississaga Road to Dorval Drive)

The Town of Oakville has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for improvements to Lakeshore Road West from Mississaga Road to Dorval Drive. The improvements are required to meet the needs of the town to the year 2031. The town is considering a wide range of options to satisfy travel demand within the Lakeshore Road West Corridor and within the study area.

The study is being carried out in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule C project as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class EA document (October 2000, as amended in 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Public Information Centre (PICs) will be held to discuss issues related to the project, including alternative solutions, evaluation criteria, environmental impacts and mitigation measures. PIC dates and details will be advertised as the study progresses. Once the study is complete, an Environmental Study Report (ESR) will be prepared and available for public review and comment. A Notice of Completion will be issued at that stage.

A key component of the study will involve consultation with interested stakeholders, the public and regulatory agencies. You are encouraged to provide your comments so that they may be incorporated into the planning of this project.
