The Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study was completed by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) as part of GWP 4015-08-00 and documented in a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR). The TESR was made available for a 30-day public review period and received clearance in May 2018. The TESR is available on the Highway 138 project website
The completion of Detail Design will be undertaken in accordance with MTO’s Class EA for Provincial Transportation Facilities, (2000) as a Group ‘B’ undertaking. Group ‘B’ projects include major improvements to existing transportation facilities include highway improvements over land or water that provide a significant increase in traffic capacity or cause a significant widening of the “footprint” beyond the roadbed of an existing highway. Group ‘B’ projects are considered approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act, subject to compliance with the Class EA and the application of mitigation measures where necessary.
A Design and Construction Report (DCR) fulfills the documentation requirements of the Class EA process for a Group ‘B’ project. The DCR will be made available for a 30-day public review period at the end of the Detail Design study. A public notice advising of the start of the review period will be provided.
The DCR will be prepared to document the following:
