Class Environmental Assessment Process

The Highway 3 Widening is considered a Group 'B' undertaking under the MTO Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). Group 'B' projects are considered as major improvements to existing transportation facilities. 

As part of a Group 'B' undertaking, a Design and Construction Report (DCR) is prepared to document the Detailed Design and Class EA process, including the scope of work, potential impacts and mitigation measures. The DCR is made available for a 30-day public review period which is advertised through a Notice of Completion.  Following the review period, the project receives Environmental Clearance to proceed to Construction.
