The City of Barrie and Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority staff have collaborated to develop a solution to reduce the potential of flooding from Kidd's Creek at Dunlop Street.
The preferred solution is to implement an open channel designed to contain the regulatory flow. This regulatory flow is based on the Hurricane Hazel storm and is greater than the 100-year storm event.
The Drainage Master Plan Update (2019) has confirmed the findings of previous studies of Kidd’s Creek and indicated that conveyance improvements are recommended for the section of Kidd’s Creek in the vicinity of Dunlop Street, west of Parkside Avenue. This section of Kidd’s Creek is being daylighted north of Dunlop Street and between Dunlop Street and High Street. The open watercourse solution also has significant environmental effect. Daylighting Kidd’s Creek provides opportunities to work with partners such as the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, MNRF and DFO to incorporate Low Impact Design (LID) drainage works and green infrastructure best practices to improve local storm water management issues.
This project will take place from June 2019 till June 2022. It will be implemented in a phased manner to accommodate
in-water works windows and road closures. The project will include:
As the project progresses, further information will be provided.
Hydro, telephone, and cable TV services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Limited service interruptions for:
Curbside collection will
not be affected. On their normal curbside collection day, businesses and residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of the property as usual. The construction contractor will remove these items and take them to outside of the construction zone for pickup by the City’s waste contractor. Please mark your address on all of your containers.
A temporary access to Bradford Street will be constructed from Fire Hall No. 1 along the former Barrie Collegiate Lands
The roadway improvements are part of the City’s capital plan for asset reconstruction. Grants from the Federal Government have been received to cover property and natural disaster mitigation measures, totalling $3 Million.
