WELCOME TO THE HIGHWAY 35 FOUR-LANE PLANNING AND PRELIMINARY DESIGN STUDY SITE

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) retained URS Canada Inc. to undertake a Planning and Preliminary Design study to identify an ultimate plan for four-laning Highway 35 for the section of Highway 35 from the Highway 35/115 interchange northerly to 2.4 km south of Highway 7 in Lindsay, a distance of 29 km. The project limits for this study are within the City of Kawartha Lakes, the Municipality of Clarington and the Regional Municipality of Durham.

The Highway 35 Four-Lane Planning and Preliminary Design Study was initiated in 1999 and included the Highway 35/115 interchange. The recently announced recommended route for Highway 407 includes a connection to Highway 35/115. It is anticipated that the Highway 407 project will proceed ahead of the Highway 35 study. Therefore, the south limits for the Highway 35 study have been shifted northerly to 0.5 km south of Regional Road 20. As a result, the recommended improvements from the Highway 35/115 interchange to 0.5 km south of Regional Road 20 will be reviewed as part of the Highway 407 East Environmental Assessment Study.

As part of the broader Highway 35 Four-Lane Planning and Preliminary Design Study, the Project Team has also undertaken a sub study (the Highway 35/Highway 7A Connection Study) to examine alternatives for the connection between Highway 35 and Highway 7A within a Study Area that is bounded by 10th Line/Lifford Road to the north, 7th Line/Gray Road to the south, and extending 2.7 km west, and 4.2 km east of the Highway 35/Highway 7A north and south junctions.

This website was established to provide project information, and to obtain your comments on the study. The website was also used to collect information from highway users.

A Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) has been prepared for this project and provides information on the environmental effects and the process that has been followed leading to the selection of the technically preferred alternative, as well as the technical findings of the study. The TESR is available for a 45-day public review period commencing Friday September 7, 2007 and ending on Monday October 22, 2007 at several locations throughout the Study Area.

Please visit the Transportation Environmental Study Report page to view the review locations and to download a copy of the TESR.
