Bayview Dr & Big Bay Point Rd Transportation Improvements

The City is undertaking a Schedule “C” Municipal Class EA to implement transportation improvements on Bayview Drive (Little Ave to Big Bay Point Rd) and Big Bay Point Rd (Bayview Dr to Huronia Rd).

Status: Study was initiated in 2015; the Notice of Study Commencement was published in August of 2015. The Draft Final report has been completed and a letter/information package to keep interested parties informed was mailed out on November 10, 2016.

Consultant: C.C. Tatham & Associates Ltd

Study Level: Municipal Class EA Schedule C.

Purpose: To consider design alternatives and establish the preferred recommended design alternative for transportation improvements on Bayview Drive (Little Avenue to Big Bay Point Road) and Big Bay Point Road (Bayview Drive to Huronia Road).

Scope: City of Barrie will look at a number of design alternatives associated with implementing transportation improvements Bayview Drive and Big Bay Point.  The impact of active transportation improvements on physical, natural, social, cultural and economic environments will also be looked at during the study.
