Red Hill Valley "More Than a Road" Project

The Red Hill Valley Project has been in various stages of planning, design and construction since 1956. This highly controversial project still remains a key component of Hamilton's transportation network and long term growth strategy. Using innovative environmental planning and consultation techniques, state of the art technical approaches and being responsive to the issues raised has resulted in designing a project that has significantly reduced environmental impacts and has made a major contribution to several technical fields in particular, natural channel stream design, landscape management and environmental impact assessment processes. The project has been a pioneer in air quality modeling, air quality health risk assessment and has contributed to the knowledge of the habitat and population of species such as the flying squirrel. This project was submitted as an entry for the Transportation Association of Canada's Environmental Achievement Award. For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD number E211395.
