Issues Landscaping Potential Effects Loss of vegetation to accommodate recommended design Mitigation Measures Minimize vegetation removal provide protection for those trees to remain Replace vegetation where feasible refer to landscape concept plan Construction Noise Potential Effects Noise from construction equipment and vehicles during construction Mitigation Measures Maintain equipment in an operating condition that prevents unnecessary noise including but not limited to non defective muffler systems properly secured components and the lubrication of moving parts Restrict idling of equipment to the minimum necessary to perform the specified work Community Recreation Commercial Industrial Potential Effects Traffic delays access restrictions during construction Mitigation Measures Design temporary detou access restrictions to accommodate access requirements Provide adequate signage to direct traffic where necessary Prepare Traffic Management Plan during Detail Design Archaeology Potential Effects Potential damage to or loss of archaeological artifacts Mitigation Measures Undertake Stage 2 archaeological assessment during Detail Design where construction is proposed beyond the existing grading limits If deeply buried archaeological remains encountered during construction notify the Ministry of Culture immediately Aesthetics Potential Effects Effect on visual landscape and scenic resources available to motorists Effect on adjacent dwellers sensitive to views of facility Mitigation Measures Enhance aesthetic design of bridges and retaining walls where appropriate to minimize visual intrusion Provide visual screening and aesthetic enhancement through landscape design refer to landscape concept plan Develop final landscape plan during detail design and present to the public at that time Traffic Operations Potential Effects Delays to traffic due to construction Mitigation Measures Implement elements of an Advanced Traffic Management System including changeable message signs and incident detection Preclude lane restrictions during peak travel times during construction Prepare Traffic Management Plan during Detail Design Maintain existing number of lanes on Queensway at most times except for minor reductions during off peak travel times Accommodation of Pedestrians and Cyclists Potential Effects Restricted pedestrian and cyclist passage under the Queensway Mitigation Measures Remove free flow channelizations at ramp terminals wherever possible Do not close adjacent crossings at the same time during construction Provide alternative route and advance warning during temporary closure of passage Emergency Service Potential Effects Impact on emergency service routes access Mitigation Measures Prepare Traffic Management Plan during Detail Design Ensure ongoing communication with emergency services during construction Drainage Potential Effects Increased runoff resulting from increased pavement platform Mitigation Measures Reduce runoff to pre construction rates by using underground detention Top of page 13 Summary of Modifications to Technically Preferred Alternative TPA in the Recommended Plan Added transit queue jump lane on Richmond Road at the Richmond Holly Acres intersection Bus movements at Queensway Station retained Channelized right turn removed at Woodroffe Avenue ramp terminals for eastbound
