Highway 69 Route Planning and Environmental Assessment from North of Nobel to Hwy 522

 
  • A part of the Trans-Canada Highway system, Highway 69 is an important route that connects rural communities, urban areas, Indigenous communities, and recreational areas within northern Ontario.
  • WSP completed the Route Planning and Environmental Assessment for 68 km of four-laning highway, combining twinning of the existing two-lane highway and new alignment sections for Highway 69 from north of Nobel to Highway 522.
  • Provincial Environmental Assessment (EA) documentation was completed in accordance with Group A requirements under the Class EA for Provincial Transportation Facilities.
  • WSP completed the preliminary design for the 68 km of four-laning, which includes seven interchanges, crosses over 100 watercourses, and reflects extensive environmental mitigation strategies.
  • WSP participated in detailed stakeholder consultation and engagement with three indigenous communities directly impacted by the project.
  • Following this assignment, WSP was assigned the detail design for 65 km of Highway 69 four-laning, and five transitional Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA) Screening Reports addressing a total of 102 km of Highway 69 four-laning.
