Environmental Assessment Taylor Kid Boulevard | Print |


County of Lennox & Addington
Class Environmental Assessment for the
Westerly Extension of CR.23
(Taylor Kidd Boulevard)

The County of Lennox & Addington retained AECOM (formerly TSH) in 2006 to complete an Environmental Assessment for the westerly extension of County Road 23 also known as Taylor Kidd Boulevard. The project followed the June 2000 Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process for Schedule C projects.

Previous studies indicated that a further westerly extension is needed to address traffic issues resulting from ongoing growth in Bath Ward of Loyalist Township. Updated traffic analysis during the EA found that:

  • East-west capacity through the study area is limited between C.R. 7 and C.R. 4. The only continuous east-west capacity through the study area is Highway 33.
  • As a result of the limited continuous east-west capacity, traffic increases in the study area will affect travel patterns resulting in potentially significant loadings of major intersections. Operating conditions at these intersections would become problematic.

To maximize the efficiency and flexibility of the network, improved capacity is required between C.R. 7 and C.R. 4. The recommended solution is to extend Taylor Kidd Boulevard from the existing terminus westerly, crossing over Millhaven Creek on a bridge structure, then turning north-westerly to Doyle Road. The recommended route then follows the existing alignment of Doyle Road, augmented by a road widening of 10 to 18 m along the north side, to C.R. 7. A Notice of Study Completion was issued on March 24, 2006.

Following the completion of the Environmental Assessment the County has proceeded with detailed design of the new road. The detailed design has now been completed and the County is ready to begin property negotiations for the new Right of Way. Construction of the new roadway will follow the completion of the property negotiations. Due to budgetary constraints construction is expected to be completed in a number of phases starting in 2016.

The Class Environmental Assessment process that is being followed requires that if construction is not commenced within five years of completion of the Class EA study, then the proponent shall review the planning and design process and the current environmental setting to ensure that the project and mitigation measures are still valid given the current planning context.

A review of the Environmental Study Report has been completed. The review has found that the recommended solution documented in the March 2006 Environmental Study Report is still valid. A letter documenting the review and the March 2006 Environmental Study Report are available for review at:
