The Town has initiated a Provincial Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to determine an alternative route(s) for the provincial traffic through the Brooklin area. The Study will evaluate alternative corridors and recommend a preferred plan to address both the local and provincial traffic needs of the Study Area.
Currently the existing Provincial Highway 7/12 travels through Downtown Brooklin (Baldwin Street) as a 2-lane urban highway. An alternate route must be determined for provincial truck traffic, goods movement and motorists not destined to Downtown Brooklin.
The EA will build on the previous Feasibility Study undertaken by the Town, which identified and assessed the feasibility of a range of alternate routes. The report for the Feasibility Study can be access using the following link:
Opportunities will be available throughout the Class EA process for interested persons to provide comments and an Interested Parties List will be maintained.
