Public Information Centre #1: Norval West Bypass Transportation Corridor Improvements – Municipal Class EA Study


Public Information Centre #1 was held online between November 19 and December 18, 2020. Residents were asked to provide input on alternative planning solutions for both the Norval West Bypass and 10 Side Road transportation corridor improvements in Halton Hills.

About the project

Study overview

To address future growth, travel demand and network connectivity to 2031, a number of road improvement alternatives will be examined for both a new Norval West Bypass and improvements to 10 Side Road. The potential improvements may include, but are not limited to:

  • a new roadway;
  • road widening to 10 Side Road;
  • active transportation (on-road bike lanes and multi-use pathways);
  • intersection improvements (for example, new traffic signals, roundabouts, turning lanes); and
  • landscaping.

The study is being conducted in accordance with the planning and design process for ‘Schedule C’ projects as outlined in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (external link) (October 2000, as amended 2007, 2011 & 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

This consultation was open for public input between November 19 and December 18, 2020. With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record.

Study area

Reasons for the study

  • To support future growth, travel demand and network connectivity, both a new Norval West Bypass and improvements to the 10 Side Road corridor are required.
  • Both corridors should support all modes of transportation (i.e., active transportation) and provide safety for all road users.

By carrying out this study, Halton Region is looking to address these needs in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process.
