The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained WSP Canada Inc., to complete the Detail Design and Class EA Study for the intersection improvements to Highway 28 at Peterborough County Road (PCR) 4. The Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR), prepared during Preliminary Design identified a Recommended Plan for the improvements. The project involves the following components:
- New traffic signals
- Dedicated southbound right turn lane
- Eastbound and westbound left turn lanes
- Improvements to the existing northbound and southbound left turn lanes
- Widening of Highway 28 between PCR 4 and PCR 8 to accommodate fully developed left turn lanes between the two intersections
- Drainage improvements including general grading of ditches and culvert replacements/extensions
- Utility relocation
The project website, www.HWY28PCR4intersection.com, is available to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed detail design. If you would like to comment, you are encouraged to contact the Ministry or the Project Consultant by August 18, 2017.
This project is following the approved environmental planning process for Group ‘B’ undertakings under the Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000), with the opportunity for public input throughout the project.
