Notice of study completion for York Road and Four Mile Creek Road intersection improvements in Niagara-on-the-Lake

​The intersection of York Road (Regional Road 81) and Four Mile Creek Road (Regional Road 100) is located in the heart of the community of St. Davids in the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. The intersection is currently controlled by an all-way stop and during peak periods motorists experience delays. The skewed angle of the intersection also creates vehicle safety issues, and there is an opportunity to improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities for the intersection and vicinity.


Niagara Region, through their consultant CIMA+, has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study for the subject intersection in accordance with the planning process for Schedule ‘C’ projects, as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (2000, as amended in 2007, 2011, and 2015), as approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. 

The Class Environmental Assessment process included public, Indigenous communities and agency consultation. As part of the consultation program, two online Public Information Centres were held (March 25, 2021 and June 23, 2021) to provide information on the project and to receive comments. 

An Environmental Study Report has been prepared to document the planning and decision-making process for the study. By this notice, the report is being placed on the public record for a 45-calendar day public review from June 30 to Aug. 15, 2022 on the project website.  

Comments and contacts 

Interested persons may provide written comments to the project contacts within the 45-calendar day review period. All comments and concerns should be sent directly to the project manager and consultant by Aug. 15, 2022.

Section 16 Order 

In addition, a request may be made to the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks for an order requiring a higher level of study (such as requiring an individual / comprehensive environmental assessment approval before being able to proceed), or that conditions be imposed (for example, require further studies), only on the grounds that the requested order may prevent, mitigate or remedy adverse impacts on constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights. Requests on other grounds will not be considered. Requests should include the requestor's contact information and full name for the Ministry.  

Requests should specify what kind of order is being requested (request for additional conditions or a request for an individual / comprehensive environmental assessment), how an order may prevent, mitigate or remedy those potential adverse impacts, and any information in support of the statements in the request. This will ensure that the Ministry is able to efficiently begin reviewing the request.
