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 Niagara Falls. It's a four-lane road that is an important corridor for moving vehicles, people and goods across the city. It's often heavily populated with traffic associated with the tourism industry, as many attractions, restaurants and retail stores are located along Lundy’s Lane. It's 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 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.
Public Information Centre #2
At this time, Niagara Region is planning to host Public Information Centre #2. The purpose of the second Public Information Centre is to share information on the current status of the project, present the planning alternatives that have been identified for the study area, and obtain input from the public and stakeholders with respect to the results of the evaluation of the planning alternatives.
Public Information Centre #2 will be held in an online format. You can participate by attending an online presentation and/or by viewing information materials on the project page.
Information materials related to the online Public Information Centre #2 will be available on the project page starting June 8, 2022, and comments will be received until July 6, 2022.
The study team will deliver an online presentation on June 22, 2022 at 6 p.m. Following the presentation, the Public Information Centre will continue until 7:30 p.m.
Comments received from the virtual consultation platform will be addressed. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the presentation to ask any questions or submit further comments. Please email email@example.com to register for and receive an invitation to the online presentation.
