City of Sault Ste. Marie - Transportation Master Plan

The City of Sault Ste. Marie has initiated the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) Study. The intent of the study is to develop a pragmatic 20 year transportation plan that will assist the City in planning its road and street network in an orderly fashion while ensuring the public funds are spent wisely. The study reflects the City’s desire to develop a sustainable transportation system friendly to motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, responsive to the needs of the natural environment and supportive of the City’s economy. This study will be carried out through an open public process in accordance with the regulatory requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process.

A key component of the study will be consultation with stakeholders, regulatory agencies and the general public. Anyone with an interest in this study has the opportunity to get involved and provide input. An online public opinion survey was provided to you and we received over 1,000 submissions. The survey summary report documenting your input is available here and on the Consultation page.

Two Public Open Houses will be held during the study. The Open Houses will offer the public another opportunity to provide feedback on the study progress and study findings presented by the project team. The first Public Open House took place on November 27, 2012. Over 40 people attended and we received numerous comments.  The second Open House will take place on January 28, 2014. The notice for Public Open House #2 can be downloaded here and on the Consultation page.

Anyone with interest in the study can contact the project team at any time by clicking on the Feedback page and completing the feedback form.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie welcomes your input and invites you to get involved in helping to plan for and build our transportation network.
