Notice of public information centre, Waterloo west side transportation study

Posted on Monday March 27, 2017

Notice of public information centre #1 - integrated multi-modal transportation study, Waterloo west side

The City of Waterloo has initiated an integrated multi-modal transportation study (IMMTS) for the Waterloo west side. The purpose of the IMMTS is to evaluate the implications of increased development and growth on the west side of Waterloo and provide recommendations on:

  • transportation network and operational improvements to accommodate growth
  • opportunities to expand, connect, and integrate active transportation and transit in the study area

The study will evaluate existing traffic relative  to  the  current  transportation network, evaluate  active  transportation  and  transit  within  the study area, forecast  future  traffic,  and provide recommendations for improving all modes of travel.  

Public participation will form an integral part of this study to ensure that the ongoing concerns of the public and affected groups within the study area are identified, documented and assessed. The project team invites public input and comments, and will incorporate them into the project documentation. A public information centre (PIC) will be held to present the existing conditions and receive public input at the following time and location:

Date: Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Time:5 to 7:30 p.m. (drop-in open house format)
