The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has retained MMM Group Limited to undertake a Class Environmental Assessment to determine a long-term strategy to address the structural, traffic safety, and operational needs of the QEW crossing of the Welland Canal. This includes the generation and evaluation of alternatives for the QEW Garden City Skyway.

The study will follow the approved environmental planning process for Group 'B' projects under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (1999), as amended in 2000. The study will consider all phases of the planning process, including:

  • Identifying structural and transportation issues;
  • Generating and evaluating a full range of alternatives;
  • Selecting a preferred alternative; and
  • Preparing a Transportation Environmental Study Report.
