Richmond Road North to Highway 417 West On-Ramp Noise Barrier Installation (WP 4043-18-00)
A noise exemption application has been submitted by WSP on behalf of the Ministry of Transportation for construction noise associated with the installation of noise barriers.
- Source of noise: Night-time construction activities will consist of the placement of temporary concrete barriers, hoisting noise barrier panels onto the structure (using a crane), and drilling/coring into concrete barrier walls on the structure to connect noise barrier panels (for approximately 10 nights).
- When: 22 nights (nonconsecutive) of work during Spring 2019* (*Tentative dates – Finalized dates when be listed and they are received).
- Where: Adjacent to Highway 417 westbound at Holly Acres Road, from 300 m west of Richmond Road westerly for 500m.
Rationale: The alternative of completing the proposed construction works during the daytime would result in significant impacts to traffic on Holly Acres Road.
Note: The Noise By-law exempts the Province of Ontario from requiring a noise exemption. Therefore, this application has been submitted as a courtesy to the municipality.
