Reasons for a Federal Assessment

On May 4, 2011, it was determined that an environmental assessment was required in relation to the project because Transport Canada considered taking action in relation to section 5 of the Navigable Waters Protection Act.

Project Description (as posted in the Notice of Commencement)

This project scope has been identified as the construction, operation, and maintenance of the bridge and temporary causeway including associated approaches and related work areas, accesses, storage areas or other undertakings directly associated with the bridge.

Final Decision

A decision was taken on July 6, 2011 and was that the authority may exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after taking into consideration the screening report and taking into account the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, the authority is of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
