Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

The Nation Municipality 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. The study was conducted in accordance with Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process (October 2000, as amended). Through consultation with Agencies, Members of the Public, and Indigenous Communities, the preferred solution for the existing bridge (C001) on Route 800 East is to replace existing bridge with a new structure.
