The Red Hill Valley Project


The Red Hill Valley Project is an integrated, environmentally responsible infrastructure project with five parts:

Parkway
  • The north-south leg of the 403 to QEW parkway.

  • An eight-kilometer, four-lane 90 km/hour controlled access parkway.

  • A truck climbing lane from the Greenhill Avenue interchange to the Mud Street interchange.

Stormwater Management Ponds
  • A series of stormwater quality facilities that filter runoff from the roadway and adjacent development.

  • A stormwater detention facility to protect the QEW, CN Rail lines, Barton Street and the Parkway from flooding that could be expected from a 100-year storm event.

Naturalized, Stabilized Red Hill Creek
  • Realignment of 7 kilometers of the Creek using natural channel design techniques that will:

    • Increase fish habitat

    • Remove existing barriers to fish migration

    • Significantly reduce sediment loading to Windermere Basin

Combined Sewer Overflow Pipe
  • 2.8 km long
  • Reduces number of discharges into creek from 20-27 times per year to 1-3
Landscape Management Plan
  • Trails

  • Tree Planting (15:1 ratio)

  • Parks

  • Ecological Restoration

  • Cultural Features
