Consultation has now closed. Next steps include:

  • Finalizing Preferred Solution for the Intersection Improvements
  • Filing the Project File Report and Notice of Completion for public review

Objective

The primary objective of this project is to complete a Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) study for the intersection of Dorchester Road and Oldfield Road.

The Study

This study will develop and evaluate intersection alternatives with the goal to:

  • improve traffic operations now and into the future;
  • improve active transportation facilities and connectivity to existing and planned facilities; and
  • continue to accommodate transit and large vehicles from the industrial properties to the southwest ensuring the safety of all road users following the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP).

Study Area

The study area is located east of the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), immediately east of the Hydro Canal, south of McLeod Road (Regional Road 49) and north of the Welland River. The intersection of Dorchester Road and Oldfield Road currently has a ‘Y’ configuration which operates as a three-legged All-Way Stop Control (AWSC) intersection. There are on-road bike lanes and a sidewalk along the north side of Oldfield Road; however, no other active transportation facilities to accommodate pedestrians or cyclists within the intersection.

Community Engagement

Consultation has now closed

We're seeking public and stakeholder feedback to provide any comments or concerns with the intersection alternatives, and recommended preferred solution which has been identified. This engagement with the community will help us identify the final preferred solution for the intersection and will improve the operation of the intersection with consideration for user comfort and safety, minimizing impacts on existing infrastructure, and connect cohesively with the surrounding roadway network.
