Environmental Assessment - Livingston Ave. Extension
All Niagara Region projects

About the Project

Niagara Region has initiated a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the Livingston Ave. Extension between Main St. W. to Livingston Ave. (west of Emily St.) in Grimsby.

Purpose of the Study

Niagara Region is completing a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which began in 2018, to assess the need for additional east-west transportation system capacity and identify alternative solutions in the west portion of Grimsby. The alternatives considered include:

  • Improvements to Main St. W. (Regional Rd. 81)
  • Improvements to the South Service Rd. (Regional Rd. 40)
  • The extension of Livingston Ave. (Regional Rd. 512)
  • Intersection improvements
  • New infrastructure to facilitate walking and cycling

The environmental assessment is to address concerns with the east-west roadway capacity identified in the Transportation Master Plan as a result of the planned growth within Grimsby.
