Oxford Street West and Gideon Drive Intersection Improvements Environmental Assessment

Background

The intersection of Oxford Street West and Gideon Drive has seen an increase in traffic volume in recent years, because of development growth, including the recent extension of Kains Road. With further growth anticipated in the area, the intersection no longer has the capacity to accommodate current and future traffic demand. 

This environmental assessment (“EA”) will look at solutions to improve the safety of the intersection, while also considering future growth and demand.

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

  • installing traffic signals at the intersection
  • implementing a roundabout

As part of this study, the project team will also look at upgrading and replacing underground services such as storm and sanitary sewers and watermains.

Current status

The project team is preparing to mail a Notice of Commencement to residents, nearby business owners, First Nations and  interested stakeholders. This will formally indicate the start of the EA.

A Public Information Centre is planned for summer 2021.

Project Timeline

February 2021: Project Team is preparing to send a Notice of Commencement

The project team is preparing to mail a Notice of Commencement to residents, nearby business owners, First Nations and interested stakeholders, letting them know the EA has started.

Fall 2021: Public Information Centre

The project team will hold a PIC meeting in which they will present some of the options that are being explored as solutions for this intersection. This is an opportunity for interested parties to provide feedback on the EA and ask any questions to the project team.

The input provided will be critical to shaping the final recommendations of the  EA study.
