Welcome

Welcome to the website for the Route Planning, Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for Highway 17 from Bonfield to east of the Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park (from 2.2 km east of Highway 531 easterly to 8.0 km east of Highway 630).

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has retained AECOM to undertake a Class Environmental Assessment to identify a recommended plan for a four-lane Highway 17 within the study limits with access restricted to interchange locations. The study will develop and evaluate a range of reasonable alternatives, including improvements to the existing highway, new highway routes and / or combinations of the two.

A Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) has been prepared to document the study process, the highway planning alternatives considered and the Preferred Plan including environmental protection measures and commitments for future action with regard to implementation of the project.

The TESR has been placed on the public record for a 30-day review period beginning Monday August 25, 2014 and is available here.
