In 2009, the Town of Oakville completed an Environmental Study Report (ESR) for the Kerr Street/CNR Grade Separation Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study between Speers Road and the QEW. The rail corridor has since been acquired by Metrolinx and is referred to as the Lakeshore Rail Corridor.
The Class EA Study subsequently was approved by the Minister of the Environment (now Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks) in March 2010.
The Town of Oakville is initiating an EA Addendum, to be carried out in accordance with the Municipal Class EA process, to address access requirements for a property, located north of the rail corridor, that requires significant modifications as a result of the realignment of Kerr Street. The EA Addendum will investigate design alternatives and recommend a preferred alternative to address access requirements.
Consultation with affected property owners and agencies will be scheduled, as well as an online Public Information Centre.
