Eighth Line Environmental Assessment Study

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.

  • Are intelligent traffic solutions; such as Intelligent Traffic Signals, or partnerships with Waze for traffic reporting and navigation being considered?

    Thank-you for your comments and interest in the Eighth Line Environmental Assessment (EA) Study.

    The EA Study will not specifically be addressing intelligent traffic solutions; such as Intelligent Traffic Signals, or partnerships with Waze for traffic reporting and navigation. Intelligent Traffic Signals would be a Town wide initiative rather than along one individual corridor. During the detail design, the Town will be considering the best technology to be used for future ITS consideration.

    If you have any further questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact the Project Team.
