OTTAWA, March 13, 2017 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Baudette-Rainy River International Bridge Replacement Project, located approximately 90 kilometres west of Fort Frances, Ontario.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups on the project and its potential effects on the environment, as described in the summary of the project description. All comments received will be considered public.
As a next step, the Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required. If one is required, the public will have three more opportunities to comment on the environmental assessment of the project.
Written comments must be submitted by April 3, 2017 to:
Baudette-Rainy River International Bridge Replacement Project
