The City of Clarence-Rockland is initiating a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to address the future requirements of the St. Jean Street-Poupart Road corridor. The corridor presently serves as a primary route that accommodates both local and regional traffic.

The study will:

  • conform with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process identified under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act for a Schedule “C” project.
  • address Phase 3 [design alternatives leading to a preferred design option(s)] and Phase 4 [Production of the Environmental Study Report (ESR) document, notification of results and review] of the MCEA process.

The City of Clarence-Rockland’s Multi-Modal Transportation Master Plan (MMTMP) that was completed in March 2020 has addressed Phase 1 and 2 of the MCEA process, hence, the need and justification for this infrastructure project have been addressed.

The environmental assessment will determine the long-term mobility requirements along the St. Jean Street-Poupart Road corridor. The proposed infrastructure improvement is to include:

  • Widening of the corridor to accommodate 4 travel lanes;
  • Upgrade and/or addition of 4 roundabouts or traffic signal-controlled intersections; and
  • Addition of pedestrian and cycling lanes along the corridor.

The EA will examine a range of alternative solutions and identify and address the various technical, environmental, land use and constructability challenges.

Your input is important to the success of the study. 

We look forward to engaging with you to develop plans tailored to the requirements of the City of Clarence-Rockland. This environmental assessment is an opportunity for public input and consultation; it will include a public open house and several meetings.
