Notice of Study Commencement: New Caledonia Arterial Road and Highway 6 Interchange

Haldimand County has initiated an Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to develop a transportation plan for: a new arterial road between Argyle Street and McKenzie Road; and a new interchange on Highway 6 (Caledonia Bypass) at a location to be determined between Argyle Street and Sixth Line. The Study will evaluate alternative roadway alignments, intersection treatments and interchange locations/configurations and recommend a preferred plan to address local traffic needs within the Study Area. For this undertaking, the County is the Proponent responsible for the planning, design and implementation of future improvements as defined by the Environmental Assessment Act.

WHY IS THIS STUDY BEING DONE?

Road network improvements are required within the southern urban boundary of Caledonia to accommodate planned/proposed development south of the Grand River. Access between the areas north and south of the Grand River is constrained by the two river crossings (Argyle Street and Highway 6), and the lack of east-west arterial roads. A transportation management plan is required to identify improvements or new facilities (i.e. new corridor, interchange) that can safely and reliably serve all modes of travel including vehicular traffic, goods movement, cyclists and pedestrians.

STUDY PROCESS

This Study will be conducted as a Harmonized Municipal Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment and Group B Provincial Class Environmental Assessment meeting the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities respectively. The Study will complete all phases of the Class EA Processes by establishing the need and justification for the project, evaluating alternatives and selecting a preferred plan with consideration of effects on the natural, social and cultural environments.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

A draft Study Design Report has been created. The draft Study Design Report describes the study background, approach and consultation programs.

There is opportunity at any time during the Class EA process for interested persons to provide comments. Early identification of individual and group concerns greatly aids in addressing these concerns.  All information will be collected in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (2009). With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record. Persons will be advised of future communication opportunities by newspaper public notices, notices on the project website and Canada Post/email mailing lists.

RAINHAM ROAD RESURFACING
West Limit of Selkirk to Haldimand Road 55

Engineering Services wishes to advise you that construction is scheduled to commence on this project starting the week of June 22, 2020. It is anticipated that work will be completed by October 2020. Rainham Road will remain open daily during this project with single lane closures occurring as required. One full closure is planned to repair the rail crossing just east of Haldimand Road 55.

The major work will involve replacing road and driveway culverts, traffic signal removal, resurfacing the road and paving the shoulders.
Staff understand that construction may cause temporary headaches to residents and business owners and ask that all affected individuals remain patient. The end goal of all construction work is to enhance our neighbourhoods and communities, and the County is committed to minimizing disruption by communicating construction information in a timely manner and responding to resident needs/concerns. Anyone with questions or concerns regarding construction projects may contact Engineering Services by e-mail or call 905-318-5932 ext. 6404.

Garbage/Recycling pickup: Please continue to place your garbage and recycling out on your usual day, in the usual location during construction. However, please ensure that all items are placed curbside no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of your regularly scheduled pickup.

Notice of Construction – Orkney St. E roadway improvements – June to August 2020

The Orkney St. E roadway improvements project is scheduled to begin in early June 2020. It is anticipated that work will be completed by the end of August 2020. Orkney Street East will remain open daily during this project for local traffic only, however access may be slow due to construction activities.

The work will involve replacing curbs and sidewalks from Banff Street to Argyle Street and then milling and paving the roadway. Residents will have access to their driveways during all phases of the project however access may be restricted temporarily to complete certain components of the construction such as concrete sidewalk, curb work and driveway apron restoration. Advanced notice will be provided to any residents affected by these driveway access disruptions so
that alternate parking and access can be arranged. The schools and churches have been contacted and accommodations will be made to ensure there is always access to these facilities when needed.

A roundtable forum is being held as part of the Official Plan Review. The session will be a facilitated workshop that will focus on:

  • Key trends impacting Haldimand County;
  • Your aspirations for the County; and
  • Two themes: Economy and Growth Management.

This is the first of two workshops in the Official Plan Update review. Facilitated Workshop # 2 will be held in the Fall of 2020 and will focus on the other policy themes, including Environment; Community Building; Leisure, Culture and Heritage; and Health and Social Services.

The Haldimand County Official Plan contains goals, objectives and policies that manage and direct physical change and its effects on the social, economic and natural environment of the County. It guides the installation of public infrastructure and the County’s zoning bylaws that development approvals must conform to.

To help us prepare for the Workshop, please contact Christina Botas – Haldimand County Planning Department at 905-318-5932 ext. 6209 or email: cbotas@haldimandcounty.on.ca to pre-register for the event.
