Eighth Line Environmental Assessment Study

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Municipalities in Ontario follow the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act to complete an Environmental Assessment (EA) for most transportation, water and wastewater projects. The complexity and extent of the environmental impact of a specific project determines the number of phases to be completed to comply with the Class EA process.

The Town of Halton Hills is undertaking a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Improvements to Eighth Line from Steeles Avenue to Maple Avenue. The need for the improvements to Eighth Line has been identified due to the increased population and greater demand on the Town’s road network.

The Class EA study will evaluate traffic capacity, options for measuring travel demand, safety issues, environmental impacts, land use implications, transit and active transportation considerations.

The community is encouraged to submit comments and ask questions.




September 23, 2020 Updates

The Town thanks all the community members who participated in the Eighth Line Environmental Assessment Online Public Information Center 2 (PIC2) that was held in June 2020.

The project team has reviewed all the comments and questions posted to the Let’s Talk Halton Hills engagement platform and responded directly to residents.

As we move forward with the refinement of the design concept, specific areas will be reviewed to limit the impact of the necessary road widening on property owners.

There will be another opportunity for input as part of the third Public Information Centre which will be held in early 2021.

Review the PIC2 summary of comments / questions matrix sheet.
