​2021 Pavement Renewal Programs

The annual programs detailed below apply different pavement renewal strategies. Information bulletins are distributed by mail to impacted residences and businesses.

Proactive renewal programs help extend the life of a road and reduce total investment over the long term:

Reactive renewal programs help increase the level of service of roads until a time that the road can be fully reconstructed:

2021 Asphalt Crack Sealing Program

This is an annual pavement preservation program to seal cracks in asphalt pavement in selected residential and arterial road segments. The routing and sealing operation helps prevent cracking and slows future pavement deterioration. It is a proven method in extending asphalt pavement service life.

The project is takes place from approximately July to October, 2021. No service interruptions are anticipated. The 2021 work is primarily focused in wards 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, and provisionally ward 7. See the maps of impacted roads.

2021 Road Resurfacing Program

Resurfacing is considered preservation because it is a proactive approach. The primary purpose of asphalt road resurfacing is to proactively prevent roads from deteriorating to the point that they would require more extensive and costly rehabilitation and/or reconstruction. Resurfacing treatment mainly involves the repair of defects, such as cracks and rutting found in the top layers of the road.

When determining which roads qualify for the program, staff consider the condition of road layers, if the road is in its window of opportunity, traffic volumes, how frequently a road gets used, and infrastructure buried below the road (for example: if a watermain needs attention, a more coordinated approach for repairs may be better).

2021 Road Segments

The full project takes place from approximately May to September, 2021. Work on each street starts with concrete curb and sidewalk replacements, if required, followed by the road resurfacing work.

Ardagh Rd.Ferndale to Patterson
Bayfield St.Grove to Ross
Dunlop St.Ferndale to Miller
​Hooper Rd.​Saunders to Welham
Patterson RdTiffin to Ardagh
Rawson Ave.Saunders to Lockhart
Rose St.St. Vincent to Duckworth
St. Vincent St.Livingstone to 220m north of Hanmer

End of Life Pavement Replacement & Holding Strategies

In contrast with the Asphalt Crack Sealing and Road Resurfacing programs, end of life pavement replacement and holding strategies are reactive. They involve relatively minor investments to achieve a service improvement until more permanent improvements can be made. One of the below techniques is implemented, depending on the pavement condition:

  • Pulverizing of existing asphalt and placement of base and top asphalt.
  • Partial depth asphalt removal, concrete curb and sidewalk removal and replacement, base and top asphalt.
  • Full depth asphalt removal, concrete curb and sidewalk removal and replacement, base and top asphalt.

End of Life Pavement ReplacementRoads that have reached the end of their useful lives, deteriorated past the point that preservation activities will help, and do not have proposed construction plans in future years of the Capital Plan.
Holding StrategiesRoads have reached the end of their useful lives, deteriorated past the point that preservation activities will help, but generally have proposed construction phases in future years of the Capital Plan. The work being completed is holding the road over until the full reconstruction project takes place.

Affected Services

Sanitary sewer, hydro, telephone, cable TV, and gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Barrie Transit: Construction for these projects should not affect Barrie Transit routes or schedules as full closures are not anticipated. Should there be impacts on transit service, they will be posted at and at impacted stops. Barrie Transit customer service can be reached at (705) 739-4209.

Curbside Collection: If required, the contractor will take curbside collection materials outside the construction zone for pickup by the collection contractor. Emptied containers will be returned to the appropriate driveway. Please ensure to always have materials curbside by 7am and mark your address on all containers with permanent marker.

Traffic Impacts

Minor traffic impacts should be expected. Impacted road segments or lanes may be closed and traffic will be detoured if required. We ask for your patience in such instances.

Bryne Drive work will mostly be completed at night (8pm–7am) with some concrete work during the day (9am–3pm). One lane will always remain open.

Dunlop will be closed nightly from 9pm-6am beginning on September 20th, between Ferndale and Tiffin/Miller. Westbound traffic will be directed to Ferndale then Tiffin during the closure times. Eastbound traffic will be directed to Tiffin then Ferndale during the closure times.

Access to Properties

All reasonable efforts will be made to maintain vehicle access to driveways. However, there may be some temporary interruptions to access during construction while construction vehicles maneuver.  The contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restriction. Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.


The contractors' work will be focused within the travelled roadway. Although the contractor is required to conduct their work in a safe manner, we ask that motorists take extra caution during the construction period.
