Final environmental report on 17/174 expansion
GREGG CHAMBERLAIN firstname.lastname@example.org
The final report is out on the environmental feasibility of upgrading the highway link between Rockland andOrleans to four-lane status. Residents, who still have comments about either the proposed “best option” in the report or the project overall, still have until the end of June to get their feedback in to the consultants and all three levels of government. The environmental assessment report (EA) is now available for final public review on the proposed future four-laning of County Road 17 andHighway 174, as far as the Trim Road intersection in Orleans. AECOM, the consultant firm hired to do the EA, has made the report available online and hard copies are available for reading at the United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) office in L’Orignal, and city hall in both Clarence-Rockland and the City of Ottawa. Marc Clermont, UCPR public works di- rector, noted that while the EA report now available is considered the final version, provincial legislation still requires a 30-day public review period during which objec- tions may be filed on either the report as a whole or parts of it. There is no guarantee that an objection would result in further study for another revised EA report. “I am glad to see it (EA) finished, and

hopefully we won’t see any objections,” said Clermont. “After that, it’ll be a matter of financing.” When the issue of expanding the 174/17 link between Rockland and Orleans began getting serious consideration from the pro- vincial and federal governments, close to a decade ago, both the then-Harper Conser- vative and the McGuinty Liberal govern- ments promised to allocate $40million each
towards the projected costs, then, of upgra- ding the route to four-lane status. There were assurances several times since then fromboth federal and provincial representatives for the Glengarry-Prescott- Russell riding that the money remained as part of senior government treasury depart- ment allocations. But Clermont would like more than ver- bal assurances that the promised funds are
still there. He also noted that the potential cost for the four-laning may be more now than the original estimates when the $80 million in federal/provincial cost-sharing was promised. Clermont has left messages with both Ottawa and Queen’s Park about the pro- mised funds but not received any reply yet. “I’d like to see some kind of letter from a minister saying it is there,” he said.
