About the Project

Niagara Region has completed a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the Livingston Ave. Extension between Main Street West to Livingston Avenue (west of Emily Street) in Grimsby.

Purpose of the Study

The purpose of the study was to assess the need for additional east-west transportation system capacity and identify alternative solutions in the west portion of Grimsby. The alternatives considered included:

  • Improvements to Main Street. West (Regional Road 81)
  • Improvements to the South Service Road (Regional Road 40)
  • The extension of Livingston Avenue (Regional Road 512)
  • Intersection improvements
  • New infrastructure to facilitate walking and cycling

The environmental assessment was to address concerns with the east-west roadway capacity identified in the Transportation Master Plan as a result of the planned growth in Grimsby.
