Frequently asked questions

Is the road extension being driven by development?

The extension of Biehn Drive is required to accommodate projected traffic volumes in the Brigadoon/Doon South communities. These volumes result from background development in the City of Kitchener including the development of the farmland southwest of the current Biehn Drive terminus. The new road is not required for the new subdivisions; however, the corridor needs to be defined before these developments can be planned since the road alignments cross private property.

What will happen to the Provincially Significant Wetland, and how will it be protected?

The Provincial Policy Statement allows construction of transportation facilities in a Provincially Significant Wetland if supported by an environmental assessment that confirms the need and develops a mitigation plan for the works.

Before the extension of Biehn Drive is constructed, environmental investigations and field work will be completed and an Environmental Impact Study will be prepared. This will include documentation on existing conditions and proposed mitigation.

Is the Study considering vulnerable road users (i.e. pedestrians/cyclists, children, people with disabilities etc.)?

The Study is considering alternative active transportation facilities to support vulnerable road users. These facilities include sidewalks, cycling facilities and multi-use paths.

Is there a supporting traffic study that shows the need for this extension?

A Need and Justification Report for the extension of Biehn Drive was completed in 2014 which recommended the extension of Biehn Drive. Additionally, the extensions of Biehn Drive and Strasburg Road were also part of the comprehensive plan for the homes that now exist in the Brigadoon Community.

This Environmental Assessment is reviewing previous studies and will validate the need for the extension.

Why can’t traffic use existing roads?

When the Strasburg Road and Robert Ferrie Drive extensions are constructed and opened, drivers will then select the shortest route to their destinations utilizing the arterial road network. It is anticipated that trips destined to/from the Brigadoon community south of Strasburg Creek will be split between the Biehn Drive extension and Caryndale Drive/Robert Ferrie Drive.

If the extension of Biehn Drive does not occur, traffic will not be distributed, resulting in higher traffic volumes in other neighbourhoods.

The extension of Biehn Drive will distribute traffic and improve traffic operations and safety in all neighbourhoods.

Can the plan change after the Environmental Assessment?

At the end of the Environmental Assessment (EA) process an Environmental Study Report (ESR) will be prepared for a 30-day public review period. This document will define the Recommended Plan for the extension of Biehn Drive.

If there are any significant changes to the recommendations in the Environmental Study Report, an EA Addendum would be required and additional public consultation would need to occur.

Can we object to the recommendations of this Study?

Upon the completion of the ESR, the public and interested stakeholders will be notified of the 30-day public review of the Report.

If, after viewing the future ESR and having made your concerns known to the Project Team, you still have concerns during the 30-day review period, you have rights under the Environmental Assessment Act. These rights will be outlined in the public notice advising of the 30-day public review period.
