Notice of Study Commencement Twenty Mile Creek Arch Bridge Replacement On Regional Road 81 in Lincoln

Niagara Region has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the replacement of the Twenty Mile Creek Bridge on King St. in the Town of Lincoln. The bridge is located approximately 550m west of Nineteenth St. where Regional Road 81 crosses Twenty Mile Creek. This bridge was constructed in 1940 and presently functions as a two-lane arterial road serving east / west traffic flows. A Rehabilitation / Replacement Planning Report was prepared in June 2010 recommending a full bridge replacement. A subsequent biennial bridge inspection was undertaken in 2017 confirming the recommendation.

The study is being carried out as a Schedule ‘C’ of the Class Environmental Assessment process in accordance with the requirements outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class EA document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Once the study is complete, an Environmental Study Report will be prepared and available for public review and comment. A Notice of Completion will be issued at that stage.

Public consultation is a key element of the process and input will be sought from various parties throughout this study. Two public information centres will be conducted to solicit public input for this study. The public will be notified through advertisement in the local newspapers and mail outs. The public information centres will provide an opportunity for the public to review the design, provide comments and discuss concerns and issues with the project team.
