Notice of Public Information Centre #1 for environmental assessment of Lundy’s Lane (Regional Road 20) in Niagara Falls

Niagara Region is undertaking an Environmental Assessment Study for improvements to Lundy’s Lane (Regional Road 20) from Highland Avenue to Montrose Road (Regional Road 98) in the City of Niagara Falls.

It is a four-lane road that is an important corridor for moving vehicles, people, and goods across the city, and is often heavily populated with traffic associated with the tourism industry, as many attractions, restaurants and retail stores are located along Lundy’s Lane. It is imperative that Lundy’s Lane remains a safe and effective transportation route now and in the future. 

This study will build on the recommendations of the Niagara Region’s Transportation Master Plan which included the following: 

  • Considerations for Active Transportation and Complete Streets
  • Intersection improvements
  • Safety and operational improvements
  • Capacity improvements

The study will aim to identify improvements to the roadway to meet the future needs of the surrounding community for all road users. The study will address active transportation, complete streets approach, streetscaping, and compatibly with the various land uses within the study area.  

The study is being carried out as a Schedule ‘C’ project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

This study will address the requirements of Phases 1 to 4 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. 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. 

Consultation with the public, Indigenous Nations, regulatory agencies and stakeholders is a key element of the Class Environmental Assessment process. Three Public Information Centres will be conducted throughout this study to solicit public input.

At this time, Niagara Region is planning to host Public Information Centre #1. The purpose of the first Public Information Centre is to share information about the project background, Class Environmental Assessment Study process, the problem to be addressed by and opportunities available for this study, and obtain preliminary input from the public for consideration into the study process.
