Notice of Study Commencement - Appleby Line Improvements

The Town of Milton has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for road improvements on Appleby Line between Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area and Derry Road. The Town of Milton has retained Wood Environmental & Infrastructure Solutions to undertake the design of this project. The study is being carried out under Schedule A+ in accordance with the requirements outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class EA document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

A Public Information Centre (PIC) was held on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 to provide area residents, property owners and the public the opportunity to review the preliminary design plans, discuss individual issues and provide comments prior to finalizing the design. Links to the presentation and study notice are provided at the top of this page.

The Town will be completing road improvements in two separate phases that will occur between 2019 and 2023. Road improvements are to include removal and replacement of existing pavement, road geometrics, curve widening and installation of a retaining wall, installation of storm sewers and new slope and drainage protection measures.

Phase 1 - 2019

Phase one road improvements will include curve widening and construction of a retaining wall along the main curve in the roadway and placement of additional signage along the entire length of the road corridor limits.

Phase 2 - 2023

Phase two will involve reconstruction within the road corridor limits (including removal and replacement of top asphalt), storm sewers and slope and drainage protection.  No significant widening beyond the existing two lanes is planned.
