The Nation Municipality has retained McIntosh Perry Consulting Engineers Ltd. (McIntosh Perry) to provide consulting services to complete a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for an existing bridge (C001) on Route 800 East.

The existing bridge (C001) that spans Butternut Creek on Route 800 East has reached the end of its service life. The Municipality is considering various alternative solutions. At this time, the preliminary Technically Preferred Alternative is to close Route 800 East at the bridge and construct a new road alignment to by-pass the creek on the north-east side.

The study is being conducted in accordance with Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) (October 2000, as amended) process. This notice signals the commencement of the Class EA. The study will confirm and document the existing structural deficiencies and identify alternative solutions. The environmental impacts of each alternative will be evaluated and in consultation with the public and external agencies, a technically preferred alternative will be selected.

Public consultation is vital to the success of this study.  We want to ensure that anyone interested in this study has the opportunity to get involved and provide input. If you wish to be involved in this study or receive information, please contact one of the Project Team Members identified below. Input received will be incorporated into the planning and design process for this project and will be received until October 17, 2022.
