Welcome to the official website for the Highway Planning, Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for the future four-laning of Highway17 from 8.0 km east of Highway 630 to the Nipissing District/Renfrew County boundary, a distance of approximately 35.4 km. The study limits are within the Township of Papineau-Cameron and the Town of Mattawa.

The study includes the development and evaluation of a range of reasonable alternatives, including improvements to the existing highway, realignment alternatives and/ or combinations of the two. The study will result in the identification of a preferred plan to improve future traffic operations and to enhance highway safety.

Please view the website and provide us with your feedback. We will provide regular updates on this site with information on events such as the Public Information Centres (PICs), as well as project documentation, as it becomes available.

If you wish to be added to our study mailing list or submit comments or questions, please go to the Contact Us section of the website.
