NEWS RELEASE
REGION OF WATERLOO
*************************
The Study:

The Region of Waterloo has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment Study (Class EA) and preliminary design for improvements to a section of Bleams Road in Kitchener. The study will investigate current and projected traffic patterns between Fischer-Hallman Road and Trussler Road to determine the need for improvements to accommodate the intensification of land along Bleams Road.  Pedestrians, cyclists and motorists will be considered throughout the study to ensure efficient and desirable interconnections between developments on both sides of the roadway.  The results of this study will determine which intersection improvements are required and can be incorporated into the design.

The Process:

The study will be conducted in accordance with Schedule “C” requirements as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association "Municipal Class Environmental Assessment" (October 2000, as amended to 2015). This is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The Class EA process includes public consultation, an evaluation of alternative solutions and alternative design concepts, an assessment of potential impacts associated with the proposed improvements, and development of measures to mitigate those impacts.

Comments:

Public, Indigenous and agency consultation with interested parties, including the public, businesses, and technical or regulatory agencies will form an integral part of this Class EA study to identify and address interests within the study area. A minimum of two public consultation centres will be held during the study to provide opportunities to learn about the study, and to share feedback. Upon completion of the study, an Environmental Study Report will be prepared and made available for public review and comment.

We want to hear from you. If you have any questions or concerns within the study area, want to know more about the study, or would like to join the project mailing list, please contact the project team:
