Niagara Region is undertaking a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, including a detailed transportation assessment for Merritt Road (Regional Road 37) and Rice Road (Regional Road 54) in Pelham, Thorold and Welland.
Wood Canada Limited has been retained to undertake this study on behalf of Niagara Region.
Following the planning phase and approval of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, a separate assignment will be initiated to implement the improvements approved through the process.
This study will provide an opportunity to reimage the two corridors (Merritt Road and Rice Road) so they will meet the future needs of the surrounding community from the perspective of all road users, supporting multi-modal travel and improve safety. The City of Thorold's Transportation Master Plan, completed in 2020, recommends that capacity improvements be undertaken on Merritt Road.
