Notes: 
The Study
Haldimand County (County) initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to address traffic and pedestrian safety concerns at the intersection of Argyle Street and Haddington Street in Caledonia. Based on the evaluation of different
intersection design options and input from stakeholders and the public during the Public Information Centre, the preferred option for the Argyle Street and Haddington
Street intersection has been identified as a signalized intersection. The preferred option will include realignment of the east leg of the intersection (Haddington Street), addition of a west leg to improve access to businesses on the west side of Argyle Street, pedestrian crosswalks on each leg of the intersection and signal phasing to accommodate pedestrian crossing time.

The Process
In accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association’s (MEA) Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, this Study was planned as a Schedule B undertaking. The EA process includes public and review agency consultation, identification of a problem or opportunity, evaluation of alternatives, an assessment of the impacts of the proposed improvements on the environment, and identification of measures to mitigate any adverse impacts.

The Project File Report (PFR), documenting the planning process, has been completed and is now available for a 30-day public review period. To view the PFR a copy can be viewed at the following locations:
