Traffic & Transportation - Heritage Road Layover - Draft Environmental Project Report

← Return to Draft Environmental Project Report

Study Highlights

  • Reviews traffic in the surrounding community and during construction and operations of the Project
  • Construction activities anticipated to commence in 2023 and finish in winter 2025
  • Road traffic effects during construction are expected to be minimal given the predominantly rural location of the Project Site and the forecast background traffic levels. They may include: 
    • Queues at the level crossing on Winston Churchill Boulevard may stretch back to access road entrance
    • Occasional temporary (e.g. less than 15 min) lane closures during construction and utilization of access road
  • No current or planned transit services operating on Winston Churchill Boulevard or Heritage Road
  • During operation, traffic levels in and out of the Layover are anticipated to be minimal

Potential Effects, Mitigation and Monitoring Measures

Potential Effect 1: Construction may result in the need for temporary road or lane closures changing access to nearby land uses.

Proposed Mitigation Measures

  • Traffic Control and Management Plan(s) will be developed prior to construction to maintain reasonable access through work zones, to the extent possible.
  • Access to nearby land uses will be maintained to the extent possible. Potentially affected residents, tenants and business owners will be notified of initial construction schedules, as well as modifications to these schedules as they occur.
  • Potential effects to pedestrian and cyclist activities during construction will be mitigated through the installation of appropriate wayfinding, regulatory, and warning signs.

Proposed Monitoring Measures

  • Traffic impacts to be monitored in accordance with the Traffic Control and Management Plan and adjust as necessary during the construction period.
  • Cycling network impacts to be monitored in accordance with the Construction Traffic Control and Management Plan and adjust as necessary during the construction period.
