Notice of Filing of Addendum: Campbellford Bridge/ Trent River Crossing & Arterial Road Network MCEA

In 2016, the County of Northumberland (County) completed the Campbellford Bridge/ Trent River Crossing & Arterial Road Network Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) recommending a new two-lane crossing of Trent River along the Alma Street to Second Street corridor and associated road network improvements (Project). The then-Minister of Environment and Climate Change was satisfied in 2017 that the Project was planned and developed in accordance with the MCEA allowing it to proceed to implementation.

Proposed Change to the Approved Project

The County is now proposing to change the associated road improvements on the western side of the proposed crossing from a signalized intersection to a roundabout at Alma Street and Grand Road (see inserted figure). 

Environmental Study Report Addendum Process

In accordance with the MCEA, the County reviewed the implications of the proposed change, consulted with potentially interested parties, and documented the review in an Addendum to the original Environmental Study Report (ESR). The MCEA allows a proponent to make changes to a Project approved under the Environmental Assessment Act prior to its implementation. 

The Addendum is available for a 30 calendar day public commenting period along with the original ESR starting on March 4, 2021 and ending on April 4, 2021 at the following locations:
