WATERLOO, ONT.—The City of Waterloo has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment Study ‘Schedule ‘C’ and is asking for public input for the section of Woolwich Street from University Avenue to Bridle Trail.
Waterloo begins EA for Woolwich Street

The city has hired IBI Group to undertake the comprehensive environmental assessment, which will recognize and accommodate the multi-modal transportation needs of the corridor through a Context Sensitive Design Approach.

The study is being undertaken to investigate the need for traffic management improvements along this section of Woolwich Street from University Avenue to Bridle Trail. It is a boundary road between Waterloo and Kitchener and is identified as a minor collector road in the city's official plan

The road currently experiences low vehicular traffic, but new and proposed residential development will increase vehicular and pedestrian traffic. This continued development requires road and municipal servicing improvements.

The study is being undertaken to investigate the need for traffic management improvements along this section of Woolwich Street, including road urbanization, enhanced cycling and pedestrian facilities, reconstruction/enhancement of underground infrastructure, and streetscape improvements.

The study will be conducted in accordance with the planning and design process for 'Schedule C' projects as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association "Municipal Class Environmental Assessment," which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
