The Corporation of the City of Sarnia

The City of Sarnia is undertaking a Schedule ‘C’ Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to extend The Rapids Parkway and Howard Watson Nature Trail from Sandpiper Drive to Exmouth Street under Highway 402 in the study corridor shown on this map.  This EA Study will select a preferred road and nature trail design to serve travel demands of motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and transit expected from planned development in the surrounding area between Highway 402 and Blackwell Road.  The road / trail extension has been planned by the City since the mid-1990’s.

A Public Information Centre drop-in will be held as follows to present preliminary Study information and receive public feedback:

Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Place: St. Patrick’s Catholic High School (Cafeteria) – 1001 The Rapids Parkway

Time:  Drop In anytime 5:00 PM – 7 PM

Study team members will be in attendance to discuss the Study status and answer questions about the Study purpose and process, traffic conditions, environmental conditions, preliminary road and nature trail designs and impact mitigation (i.e. noise, vegetation, drainage).

Anyone with questions about this Public Information Centre or to provide Study input, or wanting to be added to the Study mailing list to receive notice about further meetings should contact
