1 min read

The approved Highway 6 and Maddaugh Road intersection configuration was reviewed for opportunities to:

  • Provide a higher-order connection between Hamilton and Puslinch;
  • Improve intersection geometrics and sight distances; and,
  • Reduce impacts to wetlands and other environmental features.

The following alternatives were evaluated:

  • EA Approved Alternative (carried forward)
  • Alternative M1 – New Highway 6 Intersection Realignment (not carried forward)
  • Alternative M2 – Highway 6 Intersection and Roundabout on Maddaugh (carried forward)
  • Alternative M3 – Refined EA Alternative with Jogged Intersection (not carried forward)
  • Alternative M4 – Highway 6 Intersection and Maddaugh Road Realignment (not carried forward)
  • Alternative M5 – Highway 6 Intersection and Maddaugh Road Realignment (carried forward)

The Alternatives were evaluated based on the criteria in the table below:
