Public Input Session on Maley Drive Extension

The City of Greater Sudbury is inviting residents and community partners to attend a public input session on the Maley Drive Extension project, to be held on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at 6 p.m. in the Council Chamber of Tom Davies Square. 

The Maley Drive Extension is a construction project which is expected to provide short-, medium-, and long-term benefits to residents, businesses, and industry. The project is eligible for a three-way cost sharing partnership with senior levels of government. 

Phase One of the project will extend LaSalle Boulevard West (near Collège Boréal) to Barry Downe Road. An existing section of Maley Drive, between Barry Downe Road and Falconbridge Highway, will be rehabilitated to complete the project. The cost for Phase One is $80.1 million. The City has more than $12.2 million in a designated account to permit an immediate start to construction. The Province of Ontario has already committed its one-third share, contingent on a federal announcement.

An overview of the project, including a profile and construction maps, is available at

The public input session is an opportunity for residents and community partners to share their feedback on the project. 

To make a presentation, please register by calling 3-1-1 or by emailing City Council will hear presenters in the order they appear on the speakers’ list. Presenters are asked to limit their remarks to 10 minutes to provide as many people as possible an opportunity to share their comments.

Visit us online at to submit a written comment. Feedback forms will also be available at your local Citizen Service Centre. 

Deadline for written submissions: Monday, February 22, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.
