Malden Road Reconstruction Project - Phase 1

This project will take place in two phases. Phase one includes the stretch of Malden Road between Normandy Street and Rosati Drive.

Update September 16, 2021

The Town of LaSalle hosted a consultation session from December 2020 to February 2021 about the Malden Road Transportation, Public Safety & Urban Design Improvements. Since then, the consultation team has reviewed all of the feedback, and has been working on the finalizing of the Malden Road EA Addendum documents.

LaSalle Town Council will be receiving a report from administration, summarizing the finalized documents, at the September 28, 2021 Regular Meeting of Council. The Council agenda and report will be available to the public in the afternoon on September 17, 2021 on the Town website.

Important information about the status of the Malden Road EA Addendum will be discussed at this Council meeting. We encourage you to get involved and take a look at the report. Anyone wishing to speak about the report at the September 28 Council meeting must register with the Council Services Department by noon on Friday, September 24. Council meetings are streamed on the Town’s YouTube channel.

Update December 14, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this project has experienced delays.  Given the current restriction within Essex County, public outreach on this project will be completed virtually.  The information contained below will allow the public to participate and provide feedback on this process.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Public Consultation Centre

The Public Consultation Centre (PCC) for this project was held from December 2020 to February 2021. The Notice of Public Consultation Centre (pdf) was sent on December 14, 2020.  

A recorded presentation will be available from December 21, 2020 to February 5, 2021 with information about the project. This includes a summary of the recommendations, what has changed in the study area, a summary of the updated traffic analysis and safety review and the revisions to the preferred corridor design.

The Town will be using PlaceSpeak, an online consultation platform that gives the community the opportunity to give us their ideas, thoughts and opinions about the project. Please take some time to participate and review the project Resources. You can share your thoughts in the Discussion or drop a marker on the PlaceIt Map. We are listening.

To participate through PlaceSpeak, the participant will need to create a PlaceSpeak account. This account only needs to be created once, and then the participant will have access to other Town of LaSalle consultation projects, as well as any other projects that are posted to PlaceSpeak. The participant’s address is never displayed to other users or the administrators of the consultation. Addresses are collected to allow the administrators to know where the respondents live.  Read more in the PlaceSpeak privacy policy.


The Town of LaSalle has embarked on updating the 2009 Environmental Assessment (EA) for Malden Road from the north Town limits southerly to Meaghan Drive.  This EA update will look at changes that occurred over the years since 2009 and make recommendations to accommodate existing and future traffic demands. 

The Town of LaSalle engaged the services of Stantec Consulting in May 2019 to carry out the 2019 Malden Road EA update.  This update will build upon what was previously approved in 2009 and review changes that have occurred in the corridor since 2009.  Things such as traffic demand - current and future, planning changes relative to the new Official Plan and introduction of transit.  This 2019 EA update will also take into account any recommendations coming out the Town’s 2019 Transportation and Active Transportation Master Plan. 

As the study progresses, residents, stakeholders and the public will be engaged to shape the overall
outcome of this update and refine the preferred and recommended solutions. The public outreach will be through a public information center (PIC) meeting and as those are confirmed and scheduled this webpage will be updated.

The Notice of Study Commencement has been issued on September 13, 2019.

 **This webpage will be updated as more information is available throughout the project**
