Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and Town of Cobourg (Town) are undertaking a Planning, Preliminary Design, and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for a new Highway 401 interchange with Nagle Road within the Town and the Township of Hamilton. This new interchange is the Town’s initiative and will support the transportation objectives set forth in the Town’s Official Plan and future growth within the Cobourg East Community Secondary Plan area.
This study is a “Group B” project under the Class EA for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) and includes undertaking environmental and engineering investigations and seeking
input from the public, local municipalities, external ministries/agencies, Indigenous communities, and businesses. Upon completion of preliminary design, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) will be prepared and made available for public comment.
Notices will be published in local newspapers to advise the public of the TESR public comment period.
