UPDATE:  With the approval (in 2013) of the Port Credit Post Office site redevelopment, and the planned move of the CIBC into the main floor of the new development by crossing the street (as shown in image above) the existing CIBC building (acquired by the City) is to be knocked down in order to normalize the LSI.

    STATISTICS AND PROCESS:

  •  July 29, 2010 staff report on the status of the Lakeshore Road / Stavebank Road intersection (LSI)
  • Compilation of 2002-2010 LSI accident statistics
  • Comparative collision statistics (2002-2008) for the "top twelve" intersections in Port Credit, including Hurontario Street and Lakeshore Road (which has the most accidents).

  • In 2010 it was suggested that CIBC move to a new location at 301 Lakeshore Road West on the former 'Briarwood' development site (new link pending).  A suburban-style, one-storey, box-like structure was proposed for the new mainstreet location, but TOPCA advocated for built form in keeping with the Port Credit District Plan.

    The community was concerned that there be appropriate adaptive re-use of the heritage Port Credit Post Office building on the SW corner of the intersection.  The staff report makes clear that it is NOT an either-or situation regarding allocation of public funds.

  • In 2009, subsequent to public consultation and an Environmental Assessment (EA) process, it was decided to re-align the LSI by removing the building presently occupied by the CIBC on the SE corner. 

    BACKGROUND CHRONOLOGY:

  • The City’s Transportation and Works Dept. is reviewing the safety and efficiency concerns at the LSI intersection.  Significant changes were proposed in 2007, however, the public voiced many concerns about the proposed changes at an Open House at the Port Credit Library on September 25, 2007.   Click on the following links to see the City's 2007 documents:


  • TOPCA has been represented in correspondence to the City, and in meetings with interested Stakeholders, in order to explore alternate options:

  • Construction is on hold until further consideration is given to public comments.

  • A Public Information Centre (click for the Notice) was held on June 23, 2009.  The City has provided an electronic copy of the presentation featuring four (4) alternative solutions proposed by the Transportation and Works Dept. to deal with the safety and efficiency concerns, including the City's preferred option (#3).  Click here to view the presentation

  • On Sept. 30, 2009, a Notice of Study Completion was issued regarding the Environmental Assessment (EA) conducted in the immediate area of the intersection.  In addition, a Summary of Public Comments was also issued, further to the June 23rd PIC.  The preferred alternative (#3) is confirmed, including re-alignment of Stavebank Road South to better align with the north approach with minimal impact to Lakeshore Road East.  This will entail removal of the CIBC building at the SE corner of the intersection.
    Any further public comment was requested by October 30, 2009.  A review copy of the Project File Report is available at the Port Credit Library at 20 Lakeshore Rd. E. (map).
