Master Plans & Class EAs

Street C (Leavette Blvd) in Southeast Quadrant of Highway 5/6 Interchange

Development planning has advanced since 2013 in the southeast quadrant of the interchange, and design for the municipal road identified as Street C in the Preferred Alternative for the Associated Municipal Roads has advanced to completion of detail design. 


In 2004, Ministry of Transportation (MTO) completed a Preliminary Design Study and prepared a Preliminary Design Report (PDR) for improvements to Highway 6, from south of Highway 5 to 5th Concession East, in the City of Hamilton.

In December of 2013, a Preliminary Design and Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) Addendum was prepared for future Highway 5/6 Interchange, Associated Municipal Roads and Commuter Parking Lot at Clappison’s Corners in the City of Hamilton.

The process

This study has followed the Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) process for a Group ‘B’ project. A ‘five-year TESR review’ was undertaken and determined that there are no significant changes to the relevant portions of approved plan for this study area since the submission of the 2013 TESR Addendum. The Detail Design is nearing completion and a Design and Construction Report (DCR) has been prepared to document the TESR Review, detail design, consultation, and potential environmental impacts and proposed mitigation measures. 

Project reports

The DCR is being filed for public review from December 17, 2020 to January 25, 2021.


Interested persons are encouraged to review this document and provide comments  in writing by January 25, 2021. If you have any accessibility requirements to participate in this project, please contact the Project Team.
