Environmental Assessment for Intersection Improvements to York Rd. and Four Mile Creek Rd.
All Niagara Region projects

About the Project

Niagara Region is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, including a detailed transportation assessment for intersection improvements to York Rd. (Regional Road 81) and Four Mile Creek Rd. (Regional Road 100) in Niagara-on-the-Lake. CIMA+ has been retained to undertake the study on behalf of Niagara Region.

Following the planning phase and approval of the environmental assessment, a separate assignment will be initiated to implement the improvements approved through the process.

Purpose of the study

The study will provide an opportunity to change the intersection from an all-way stop control to traffic signal control or a roundabout to meet the future needs of the surrounding community from the perspective of all road users, supporting multi-modal travel and improving road-user safety as identified in the 2017 Region's Transportation Master Plan.

The extent of the road modifications will attempt to strike a balance between meeting future traffic capacity objectives, adhering to Complete Streets guidelines (in terms of keeping road cross sections to a minimum), and minimizing costs and impacts to adjacent properties and creek crossings.

This project was initiated to:

  • Identify and evaluate a range of alternative solutions to accommodate growing traffic volumes at the intersection, including
    • Geometric and intersection improvements
    • Complete streets and urban design concepts
    • Access management and transit
  • Address active transportation needs by providing a dedicated facility for pedestrians and cyclists that is safe, attractive and strengthens the area's relationship with its past
