Powerline Road Transportation Capacity Environmental Assessment

The Study

The City of Brantford has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study (Study) for improvements to Powerline Road, from Paris Road to the east municipal boundary.

As identified in the 2020 Transportation Master Plan, Powerline Road is forecast to experience significant growth in traffic volumes over the coming years that will result in the majority of Powerline Road approaching or exceeding capacity during peak demand. The Study will identify and evaluate various solutions and designs to address transportation capacity constraints along Powerline Road and accommodate future growth.
