Project Overview

The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is developing a Transportation Master Plan (TMP). The TMP will serve as a long-range strategic plan for the Town that addresses existing challenges and opportunities, supports growth, and recommends policies that support an efficient, multi-modal transportation network - including vehicular, bicycle, pedestrian, and transit mobility.

The study will provide an assessment of the Town’s transportation improvement needs to the 2031 horizon and will provide recommendations for operational, design, and transportation policies that the Town uses to manage its transportation infrastructure.

The Process

The Niagara-on-the-Lake TMP will be undertaken in accordance with the Master Planning

The Process

The Niagara-on-the-Lake TMP will be undertaken in accordance with the Master Planning process of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Municipal Engineers Association, 2000 as amended) (Class EA), which is an approved process under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act. The TMP will provide the framework for future projects that may require further detailed studies under the Municipal Class EA. We are nearing the completion of the four-phase study, and we anticipate that the study will be completed in the fall of 2021.

Ways to Get Involved

There will be many ways to participate in the study. The first round of Public Information Centres (PICs) was held in the fall of 2020, to provide background information on the study and initial observations.

The second round of PICs will be held in the summer of 2021 to provide preliminary study recommendations. Please note that the presentation and meeting summary will be posted to JTC following the meetings.
