Burnhamthorpe Road West Environmental Assessment

Burnhamthorpe Road West is a major arterial road serving a busy residential and commercial area in the City of Mississauga. To ensure proper capacity, a review of existing traffic volumes and future needs was carried out.

CIMA+ was retained to undertake a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study to assess the impacts of the client’s goal of building a multimodal city reliant on a range of transportation modes, including walking, cycling, public transit and private and commercial vehicles.

Several alternatives and design concepts were assessed in this study to address potential operational deficiencies and increase the capacity within the corridor, such as widening the roadway and making improvements to intersections. For each alternative, the social, cultural, economic and environmental impacts were assessed. The final design will be selected in consultation with the public and regulatory agencies.
