Notice of Study Completion - Academy Street Road Reconstruction

The Town of Lincoln has completed a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) and preliminary design study for the reconstruction of Academy Street in Beamsville. 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 assessed, including the potential of converting a portion of the roadway to one-way traffic operation. The study area covers a distance of approximately 1.9 km along Academy Street from King Street to south of Beam Street.

This study was conducted as a “Schedule B” project, following Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Engineers Association “Municipal Class Environmental Assessment” (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015). A problem statement and alternative solutions were presented for public review and comment at a Public Information Centre held on December 17, 2015. Following the evaluation of alternatives and taking into consideration public comments, a preferred solution was selected as described below:

  • Conversion to one-way traffic operations (South to North); and

  • Reconstruction of the roadway to current standards, including:

    • Curb and gutter on both sides of the roadway,

    • Sidewalk on the west side of the roadway, and

    • Boulevard on the west side of the roadway at the Beam Street intersection.

A Project File Report documenting the planning process that led to the preferred solution will be available for public review from June 14 to July 15, 2016 at the following locations:
