The Environmental Assessment (EA) for this project was planned and approved in 2004. A subsequent EA Addendum (update) was completed and approved in 2015 and made changes to the original study design in order to reduce property and community impacts.
The Addendum (update) to the 2004 ESR was approved by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) in August 2015.

This Environmental Assessment Study was completed in early 2004 and identified a preferred design which included:
In 2017, the City conducted field investigations including a survey of the area and analysis of soil samples in various locations along Port Union Road to confirm ground conditions. Based on the results, the City is developing the project design. Once the design is finalized, the City will provide further details on a construction start date.
As part of the Port Union Road Improvements project, site investigations to locate gas mains will take place at several locations along Port Union Road. Testing is done so the design and planned work will not affect existing gas mains. This work will commence on Tuesday, February 19 and is expected to take between three and seven days to complete.
