The City of Thorold has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment study for the reconstruction of Decew Road between Richmond Street and Beaverdams Road, in the City of Thorold.  The road is in poor condition and is without cycling paths or consistent sidewalks.

In addressing the need to reconstruct the road, the study will also consider: geometric and operational improvements to the road and intersections; street lighting, improved pedestrian and cyclist amenities.  The project will also include recommendations for upgrades and replacement of underground services (watermain, storm and sanitary sewer).


The project is being completed as a Schedule “B” project in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, as amended. As such, public and technical agency consultation will be fundamental in developing the study recommendations. 

Public Engagement

The first of two Public Information Centres (PIC) will be held to present and obtain information on the key issues and constraints within the study area and preliminary options under consideration. The PIC will be held as an informal open house format with study materials on display and members of the project team on hand to answer questions and discuss issues related to the project.
