Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

This project supports the Region of Waterloo's strategic focus area(s): Icons representing the Region's strategic focus areas of Thriving economy, Sustainable transportation, Environment and climate action, Healthy, safe and inclusive communities, Responsive and engaging public service and Our people.

University Avenue and King Street IntersectionImprovements along University Avenue (Regional Road 57) are being considered to improve roadway and underground infrastructure, active transportation facilities and traffic operations along the corridor.

The Region’s Transportation Capital Program has identified this section of roadway for major rehabilitation to address deteriorated pavement structure and provide active transportation and intersection improvements. Also, the City of Waterloo’s watermain and sanitary sewer systems require replacement.

The Region’s Transportation Master Plan has identified the road section on University Avenue from King Street to Weber Street for cycling infrastructure installation to complete cycling network connectivity in this area.

We are currently undertaking a Schedule "C" Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for improvements to the University Avenue (Regional Road 57) corridor from Albert Street to Weber Street in the City of Waterloo. The Municipal Class EA is a planning and decision-making process approved under the Environmental Assessment Act that is used by municipalities to plan public infrastructure projects so that potential environmental impacts are considered before a project is approved. It requires consultation with the public, involved stakeholders and agencies to consider alternatives and their impacts on the project environment.

Public Consultation Centre # 2 Feedback is now CLOSED.

Please refer to the document section on this page for Public Consultation 2 Summary Report for a summary of comments received from Public Consultation 2.
