Project Overview

The study limits of this Highway 17 Planning Study are located within the Township of Papineau-Cameron and the Town of Mattawa, as shown in the key plan.

Highway 17 traverses northern Ontario, providing a strategic link in the Trans-Canada Highway. Besides providing for basic travel needs for residents as well as visitors to the area, this section of Highway 17 provides a transportation corridor for long haul trucks from eastern Canada to northern Ontario and western Canada.

This 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 recommended plan to improve future traffic operations and to enhance highway safety.
