Class Environmental Assessment for Portage Parkway
Portage Parkway Widening and Easterly Extension to Creditstone Road
In May 2015, the City of Vaughan initiated an Environmental Assessment Study for Portage Parkway Widening and Extension to Creditstone Road, a strategic network improvement in the Vaughan Transportation Master Plan – A New Path (2013).
The City of Vaughan Transportation Master Plan (TMP) – A New Path (2013), companion to the City of Vaughan Official Plan (2010), identified projects that will improve connections to local and regional infrastructure, provide access to future developments, support transit-oriented nodes and corridors, and enhance transit ridership, cycling and walking.
The TMP identified the need to widen Portage Parkway to four lanes from Applewood Crescent to Jane Street, and establish a new four lane road from Jane Street to Creditstone Road as a key element of the planned street network in support of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
The Study is progressing to completion in accordance with "Schedule C" of the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the following projects:
- Portage Parkway Widening and Easterly Extension to West of Black Creek (Part A) - COMPLETE
- Portage Parkway Extension from West of Black Creek to Creditstone Road (Part B) - COMPLETE
Study Process and Timeline - COMPLETE
A key component of the study included consultation with interested stakeholders (public and agencies). Two Public Information Centres (PICs) were held to present the study, review the study scope and discuss issues related to the project including alternative solutions, alternative designs, evaluation criteria, and environmental impacts and mitigation measures.
