Notice of study commencement: Longworth Avenue Extension, West Urban Boundary to Holt Road, Bowmanville

Posted on Friday July 29, 2016
Environmental Assessment Study Area
Preliminary study area

Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

Longworth Avenue Extension, West Urban Boundary to Holt Road, Bowmanville

The Municipality of Clarington is undertaking a Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class EA document dated October 2000 (as amended). The purpose of this study is to investigate alternatives and possible alignments for construction of a new road and associated servicing from the Bowmanville west urban boundary (Boswell Drive road allowance) to either Holt Road or Maple Grove Road.

The study will investigate the need for a new type ‘B’ arterial roadway, possible reconfiguration of Holt Road at the proposed intersection with Longworth Avenue and improvements to Holt Road. If recommended, the easterly limit of the new road would align with the westerly limit of Longworth Avenue to be completed as part of the Brookhill Neighbourhood development process.

The need for the new roadway is supported by the Municipality of Clarington’s Official Plan (2014), the Brookhill Neighbourhood Secondary Plan (2014) and the Draft Clarington Transportation Master Plan (2016). As part of this study, alternative solutions will be investigated in consultation with members of the public, agencies and other stakeholders. Disposition, severance, easements or any other actions related to property that may be required to support the project will also be evaluated during the EA process.

A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be arranged and advertised at a later date to provide project stakeholders and the general public with an opportunity to review and offer feedback on existing study area conditions, evaluation of alternative solutions and the recommended alternative solution, as well as potential impacts and proposed mitigation measures associated with the preferred solution.
