Notice of Public Information Centre for the Integrated Renewal of County Road 64

The County of Northumberland (the County) and the Municipality of Brighton (the Municipality) are conducting a Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) for the Integrated Renewal of County Road 64. County Road 64/Prince Edward Street is an arterial road through Brighton, connecting to Prince Edward County and providing a primary north-south route for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists in the Brighton urban area.

The project area is from Elizabeth Street, in downtown Brighton, to the Quinte West boundary at Stoney Point Road and is divided into two sections:

  • Urban section (Elizabeth Street to Harbour Street): The preferred design includes on-road bicycle lanes, upgraded sidewalks on both sides of Prince Edward Street, traffic calming features, intersection upgrades and rehabilitation or replacement of sewers and watermains.
  • Rural section (Habour Street to Stoney Point Road): The preferred design includes road resurfacing with paved shoulders and some culvert replacements.

The process

GHD was engaged to provide engineering services to:

  • Assess the condition of the existing roadway and underground infrastructure to confirm needs
  • Identify opportunities for improvements considering safety, accessibility, and active transportation
  • Develop design alternative designs for renewal of the road and related infrastructure
  • Examine impacts of alternative designs on the social, cultural and natural environments and identify measures to mitigate impacts.
  • Evaluate the alternatives and establish a preferred alternative for implementation and will undertake consultation with the public and agencies.

Learn more and get involved

The second Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held to present the preferred design. After the presentation, the public will have an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback, and learn about how to stay involved in the project going forward.
You can join the PIC on Tuesday, March 21, 2023 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The PIC format will be a drop-in session with a short presentation (15 minutes) at 5:30 p.m.
