Class Environmental Assessment Process
The Highway 3 Widening Project is being completed in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) as a Group ‘B’ undertaking. Two (2) Design and Construction Reports (DCRs) will be prepared to document the detailed design, public and agency consultation completed and environmental mitigation measures that will be in place during construction. DCR #1 documents the majority of the project (available now), while DCR #2 will document additional drainage improvements requiring additional time to secure approvals (available at a later date).
