Area E2 Road Construction - Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Borden

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project. Area E2 is located within the Canadian Forces Base Borden Range and Training Area, and is utilized to facilitate the delivery of mounted vehicle driver training to Canadian Forces members. Access to the Training Area is obtained through Borden Range Control with maintenance conducted by Real Property Operations. The proposed road construction will allow improved access for emergency vehicles into the training area, while also minimizing impacts to the ecosystems by concentrating vehicle use.

Improvements to the training area will include:

  • Expansion of road network;
  • Construction of gravel for all-season roads, using existing trails;
  • Realignment of existing trails; and,
  • Construction of ditches to better manage surface water runoff.

Construction activities are proposed to occur in the fall of 2023 and the spring of 2024 to limit impacts to Species at Risk.
