Full agenda

Direct Motion

Dunlop Street East corridor improvements - Toronto Street to Mulcaster Street (Ward 2)

Barrie Council gave final approval to a direct motion that the total budget for this project be increased to $13.1 million and that City staff be directed to seek offsetting reductions within 2019 capital projects and report back to General Committee as part of the capital status report. Until such time the additional cost will be temporarily funded through the City's Tax Capital Reserve.

Much of the $2.58-million increase in the project's total budget, from $10.52 million, comes from costs that include sewer and water remedial work, two paved lanes of road construction, traffic signals, street lights, sidewalks, street furniture and tree replacement.

This project involves enhanced streetscapes and beautification of the Dunlop Street East corridor, from Toronto Street to Mulcaster Street, along with safe pedestrian movement and accessibility, enhanced lighting, visibility and the inclusion of on-road, boulevard patios.

Its reconfigured streetscape would maintain two-way traffic and parking areas that can be used for either pedestrian space or parking, depending on the time of year and demand. This streetscape has been designed to complement Memorial Square/Meridian Place, ensuring a seamless transition of street furniture such as waste collection bins, benches, street lighting and the colours of the roadway and walkway. Owen Street would remain two-way, with the intersection of Owen and Dunlop streets having traffic signals.

Construction is expected to begin in September of 2019, and take place in three phases.
