Alternative 1 and Alternative 4 within the West Corridor will continue to be assessed and evaluated in the EA. Both of these potential routes start at Painter Lake Road and run north before turning eastward toward the MFFN community; roughly following the west/north side of the Albany River.
In 2019, during early stages of the EA process, two broad corridor alternatives were presented—a West Alternative and an East Alternative. Two possible route options within each corridor were identified and shared through consultation as potential alternative routes.
Feedback received from MFFN community membership, Community Member Advisors and Chief and Council during winter and spring 2019 led to a decision that the two route options within the East Corridor (Alternative 2 and Alternative 3) would not be considered further, leaving Alternative 1 and Alternative 4 for further consideration during the EA.
