Connecting Links program (MTO)
The City of Barrie received funding from the Province of Ontario through the
Connecting Links program to resurface Bayfield Street between Cundles Road and Livingstone Street.
All works are generally complete. Contractor will clean up site, complete restoration, and demobilize from site the week of September 21, 2020.
Asphalt paving is anticipated to be completed by Saturday, September 12, weather permitting. Line painting is anticipated to take place on Sunday night.
We will always do our best to maintain access to businesses on Bayfield Street during construction. There will be times in which access is temporarily restricted; however, these will be for short durations.
We are expecting one lane will be closed during the day time to accommodate localized curb and sidewalk repairs.
All major work (surface milling, asphalt placement) will take place between the hours of approximately 9pm and 6am. One lane for northbound and one lane for southbound traffic will remain open at all times during the night work.
No services are expected to be affected throughout construction.
Through the provincial government's Connecting Links program, the government is helping municipalities repair designated municipal roadways and bridges that connect two ends of a provincial highway through a community.
The City of Barrie employs a range of strategies to effectively maintain our roads. The work along Bayfield Street is a proactive/preventative strategy, aimed at preventing roadways from further deteriorating to a point where much more costly strategies must be employed (reconstruction).
Bayfield Street experiences much more traffic volume compared to other roads in general. It is therefore more prone to rapid deterioration and must be proactively dealt with so that the road can continue to support the effective movement of traffic.
As with any City project, the need is evaluated and prioritized according to available budgets, so while there may be roads in differing conditions throughout Barrie they are all continually evaluated and prioritized according to the various strategies available to maintain our roadways.

Pavement Management for more information about the strategies used in managing and maintaining our roadways.
