Belterra Estates is a planned community of over 1800 residences in Alliston currently under development by the owners of the Nottawasaga Inn Resort. Crozier & Associates was retained to consolidate, refine and gain approval for traffic engineering that had been ongoing for nearly ten years. With the first phase of development nearing completion, immediate resolution of external roadway improvements for the Ministry of Transportation was critical to allow for continued home building.
It was quickly discovered that the Ministry did not have sufficient right-of-way at certain areas of Highway 89 to fit the necessary road widening and intersection improvements. Crozier & Associates pursued alternative design options and was able to achieve consensus on a resolution to the road alignment. Detailed design is in process with completion scheduled for Spring 2015 and construction slated for the summer and fall of that year.
Where development approvals are linked to external infrastructure improvements, Crozier & Associates will identify and design these works so that tight project schedules do not become compromised.
