I’ve been following the QEW Improvements from Evans Ave. to Cawthra Road process for some time. I much enjoy keeping up to date with the project. I’ve attended many of the meetings.
I like the way the public is informed and has the opportunity to offer feedback in an informed and structured way.
The meetings I’ve attended have been well facilitated. All of the communications have been handled capably.
I’m pleased to share the following text, which is from the following notice:

Re: Notice of Public Information Centre #3
Queen Elizabeth Way Improvements from Evans Avenue to Cawthra Road
Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment Study
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained MMM Group Limited to undertake a Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for improvements to the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) from Evans Avenue to Cawthra Road.
The study limits extend approximately 3.5 km through the City of Mississauga (Region of Peel) and the City of Toronto.
The purpose of this letter is to notify you that the third and final Public Information Centre (PIC) for this project has been scheduled and to invite you to attend the event to review and comment on refinements to the overall technically preferred alternative presented at PIC #2, the preliminary design and the potential mitigation measures.
PIC #3 will be held as follows:
Public Information Centre #3
Date: Thursday, January 22, 2015
Location: Le Treport Wedding and Convention Centre, Salon B
1075 Queensway East
Mississauga, ON, L4Y 4C1
Time: 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The study is following the approved environmental planning process for Group “B” projects under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000), with the opportunity for public input throughout the study. Upon completion of the study, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) will be completed and made available for a 30 day public review period. Newspaper notices will be published at that time to explain the review process and identify the locations where the TESR will be available for viewing.
We look forward to your attendance at the PIC. Members of the Project Team will be available to discuss the study and respond to questions or concerns. All comments received will be reviewed and considered.
Additional details about the study can be viewed on the study website at www.qewdixieea.ca. The displays presented at PIC #3 will also be available on the study website after the PIC.
