The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO), in co-operation with the Regional Municipality of Niagara, have retained URS Canada Inc. to undertake a Class Environmental Assessment and Preliminary Design Study for the interchange improvements at the Queen Elizabeth Way and Bowen Road in the Town of Fort Erie, Niagara Region.
At June 16th’s Fort Erie Town Council meeting, URS presented the evaluation of alternatives, the preliminary details of the Technically Preferred Alternative, and proposed measures to minimize or avoid impacts. The Technically Preferred Alternative includes replacing the existing Bowen Road bridge to the south of the existing alignment with a 4-lane cross section and reconfiguring the Bowen Road interchange to a Parclo A4 interchange configuration.
URS and the MTO will be hosting a Public Information Centre (PIC) in the Fort Erie Town Hall Atrium on Tuesday June 24th from 4pm-8pm. The PIC will be an informal drop-in centre and representatives from MTO and URS will be available to answer questions and discuss the study.
This is very positive and exciting for CMS, to see the hard work and co-operation of the MTO, URS, The Niagara Region, The Town of Fort Erie and CMS come together to develop some of the outside infrastructure designs required to move CMS forward.
