The City of Hamilton has initiated the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment or Class EA process to identify preferred solutions for existing and future stormwater management challenges.
This project was initiated to address road clearance issues underneath the bridges within the study area to ensure road clearances under City of Hamilton bridges continue to comply with engineering standards. In addressing the road clearance requirements, new stormwater management challenges were identified in addition to the existing drainage challenges along the corridor. The project will aim to identify solutions to both existing and future storm water management and drainage challenges.
The City is asking residents to provide their input on the project concerning the three overhead bridges along Birch Avenue between Burlington Street East and Barton Street East.
Location: Birch Avenue (Barton Street to Burlington Street)
Classification: Schedule B
