Marie initiated a project to complete upgrades along Huron Street from Queen Street to Cathcart Street in 2004. At that time, a preliminary design was developed within the framework of the Class EA process. The preliminary design incorporated a four lane road cross-section (ie. two lanes in each direction) throughout the project limits. A Notice of completion was issued in June, 2004. <br /><br />Since that time, Carmen’s Way has been constructed and the reconstruction of the Canadian Bridge Services Agency (CBSA) Plaza property has been initiated. In addition, the Hub Trail is being re-routed along Albert Street and Huron Street from Carmen’s Way to Queen Street to accommodate the CBSA redevelopment. These projects will impact traffic operations and the roadside environment within and around the CBSA property. In particular, truck traffic will now access the international bridge from Carmen’s Way rather than from Huron Street and truck traffic will exit the CBSA plaza property onto Queen Street heading westbound to Carmen’s Way.<br /> <br /><img width="585" height="612" style="WIDTH: 317px; HEIGHT: 415px" alt="Limits of Study - Key Map Huron Street" src="/contentadmin/UserFiles/Image/CityDepartments/ENG/Limits%20of%20Study%20-%20Key%20Map%20Huron%20Street.jpg" /><br /><br /><strong>Class EA Addendum <br /></strong><br />The City is proceeding with an amendment to the previously completed Schedule B Class EA to address potential changes to the previously approved preliminary design that was finalized in 2004. The City has retained AECOM Canada Ltd., a Consulting Engineering firm, to identify what, if any, modifications are required to the previously completed preliminary design. Design changes will be considered within the framework of the Class EA process and an Addendum to the previously completed Class EA will be prepared. <br /><br />Public and external agency consultation is a key component of this Study. Details of this project will be presented at a future Public Open House to provide interested stakeholders with an opportunity to meet with the Project Team and discuss the project. The Open House will include opportunities for interactive discussions to engage participants and solicit their input. Notification of the Open House will be advertised in local media and delivered to individuals included on the project mailing list and/or abutting the project. <br /><br />We are interested in receiving comments that you may have about the study. Should you have any comments or questions, or wish to receive additional project information and/or be included on the project mailing list please contact either of the Project Team members. <br /><br />Carl Rumiel, P.Eng., Design and Construction Engineer, City of Sault Ste.
