Public Notice: Patterson/Duffy’s Lane Bridge Environmental Assessment

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

As part of the Town of Caledon’s Asset Management Strategy, improvements are being considered for bridges and culverts. This is due to the wear and tear on existing infrastructure and to plan for future increased traffic use. The Town has initiated a Schedule ‘B’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to consider options for improvements to the following bridges. The approximate location of the project is shown on the map.

Patterson Side Road Bridge (1)

For improvements to the existing 2 lane, T-beam reinforced cast-in-place structure constructed in 1950 and located approximately 0.1 km West of Duffy’s Lane over the Humber River.

Patterson Side Road Bridge (2)

For improvements to the existing 2 lane, rigid frame, vertical leg reinforced cast-in-place structure constructed in 1950 and located approximately 0.03 km East of Duffy’s Lane over the Humber River.

Duffy’s Lane Bridge

For feasibility investigation to determine future management of the existing structure. The bridge is located approximately 0.03 km South of Patterson Side Road over the Humber River.

The Process:

The project is being planned under the Municipal Class EA process (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015) (Class EA) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The Study will evaluate Alternative Solutions and design alternatives with consideration of the natural, cultural, technical, and financial environments and recommend a Preferred Solution in consultation with the public. Further information about the project and planning process can be found at caledon.ca/notices. At the end of the study, the process will be documented in a Project File Report (PFR), prepared for public review.
