About the Project
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained AECOM to undertake a Planning, Preliminary Design, and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for Highway 401 from 1 km east of Highway 16 to 3.3 km west of Maitland Road for a total length of approximately 20.75 km, located within the Township of Augusta, Town of Prescott, and the Township of Edwardsburg Cardinal. The study will look to address current and future transportation needs by developing a plan for the rehabilitation and/or replacement of 10 bridges & 4 structural culverts, determining the long-term plans for the Maitland Road, Edward Street, and Highway 16 interchanges, and will establish the future footprint for interim six lanes and ultimate eight lanes of Highway 401.
The details of the proposed work will be further developed as the Preliminary Design progresses and will be presented to the public and agencies at two future Public Information Centres.
