Notice of Public Information Centre - Academy Street Road Reconstruction

Academy Street Road Reconstruction

Class Environmental Assessment & Preliminary Design Study

The Town of Lincoln has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for the reconstruction of Academy Street in Beamsville in the Town of Lincoln (see Location Map).  Reconstructing Academy Street to the current minimum standard for two-way traffic operation cannot be achieved without significant private property impacts due to an existing narrow municipal right-of-way. As such, various alternatives for road reconstruction have been proposed, including the potential of converting a portion of the roadway to one-way traffic operation. 

A potential change in road operation requires the Town to conduct a Class EA study in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007 and 2011).  Key components of the Class EA process include identification of the problem/opportunity, assessment of alternative solutions including environmental impacts and mitigation, and public consultation.  

You are invited to attend a Public Information Centre (PIC) for this project to review the problem/opportunity statement and evaluation of alternative solutions.  The PIC will be held:

December 17, 2015

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Fleming Centre

5020 Serena Drive, Beamsville
