Opportunities for developing complete streets and increasing access for all road-users will be explored. The Class EA study defines the problem, identifies and evaluates alternative solutions, and develops a preferred design for the corridor in consultation with adjacent property owners, regulatory agencies, Indigenous communities, members of the local business community and the public.
