FORT ERIE, Ont. — The public is being given another opportunity to get their ideas in to the Peace Bridge Expansion Project on Dec. 1.

A public Concept Development workshop will be held to get ideas for river crossings, U.S. Plaza locations and how the plaza will connect with highways and local streets. All information will be transcribed onto paper and held on record. Project consultants will also be available to work with the public develop their ideas.

The workshop will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Buffalo, N.Y. from 1 p.m. to 5 with two two-hour sessions in that time.

“This workshop is a great opportunity for people who may have an idea, but not the tools they might need, to get their ideas in their head down on paper and submitted for the record,” says project manager Jake Lamb. Sized aerial photos and maps will be provided for work sessions, as well as templates and other tools to assist in their design.

Each concept submitted will be included in the long list of alternatives in the final scoping document. These and other concepts from Step 1 of the project will be described during future public information meetings.

The long list will then move to Step 2 of scoping, at which point ideas will be evaluated and analyzed to identify those alternatives that are practical and can reasonably meet the needs, goals and objectives of the project.
