Gore Road and Hamilton Road Intersection Improvements Environmental Assessment

Background

Hamilton Road and Gore Road is a busy intersection. Due to London's growth, there is a need to accommodate the increasing amount of traffic by improving this intersection and addressing the mobility concerns of pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. The City is undertaking an environmental assessment to determine possible alternatives that will make this intersection safer.

During this study, the project team will evaluate alternatives, select the preferred alternative, and assess the environmental impacts and potential mitigation measures.

Options that are being explored include, but are not limited to:

  • installing traffic signals at the existing intersection
  • realigning Hamilton and Gore roads and implementing traffic signals
  • realigning the aforementioned roads and implementing a roundabout

Current status

The City is preparing to host a virtual Public Information Center (PIC) on June 24 from 5 p.m. till 7 p.m. for residents and businesses to learn more about this project. This project information would typically be presented at an in-person public meeting, but adjustments are being made to ensure public safety and to follow COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings.
