Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study
Notice of Public Information Centre #2
We invite you to attend a Public Information Centre to learn about this study being undertaken by the City's Transportation Services Division, and the next steps in the environmental assessment (EA) process.
The Glen Road Pedestrian Bridge is deteriorating and is in need of major improvements. Transportation Services is undertaking a study to determine the long-term plan for the bridge and identify opportunities to improve the adjoining pedestrian tunnel that connects to the south side of Bloor Street East.
The Process This study is following a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Schedule ‘C’ process. The study defines the problems and opportunities, develops and evaluates a range of solutions and designs, invites pubic review, receives stakeholder feedback, and will result in a recommended design.
Technical analysis and stakeholder consultation has resulted in a preliminary recommended design:
- Replace the bridge in the same location with a wider, steel girder incline leg bridge type (very similar to the current structure)
- Replace and widen the tunnel to the west (following the current alignment)
View drawings and imagery of the designs at the October 24th public drop-in event.
An Environmental Study Report will be prepared at the end of the process and be made available for public review. Further public consultation will be conducted during the Detail Design phase of the project following completion of this Class EA study.
