Wonderland Road / HWY 3 MCEA

Wonderland Road / Ron McNeil Line / Ford Road / Highway 3 Environmental Assessment Study 

Project Description

The County of Elgin in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to review and determine if road network improvements are required in the area of Wonderland Road, Ron McNeil Line, Ford Road and Highway 3 in the Township of Southwold. This project is being carried out under the planning and design process for a Schedule ‘B’ project as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), and will meet the requirements for Group ‘B’ projects under MTO’s Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). 

The County of Elgin and MTO have retained GHD Limited to confirm the need and justification for improvements, identify alternative solutions, and evaluate alternatives based on the effects on technical criteria (including traffic), and the natural, built, social, economic and cultural environments.

Public consultation is an important part of the Class EA process and we want to hear from you. Due to the ongoing Public Health Emergency related to COVID-19, an Online Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held April 16 to April 30, 2021 and is available to the public to provide input on the Network Improvements. To provide comments, receive additional information or be added to the study mailing list, contact a project team member.
