The City of Barrie Engineering Department is replacing the existing 1.5m culvert on Innisfil Street between Brock St. and Tiffin St. over Hotchkiss Creek. A larger open bottom box culvert is being installed in accordance with the City’s Storm drainage master plan. The larger culvert will reduce flooding during large rain events.
March 27, 2020Major construction milestones have been achieved this month and the remaining project work will be completed over the next two months. Stormwater catchment and treatment infrastructure will be installed in accordance with environmental requirements, and watermain reinstated prior to the restoration of the roadway, sidewalks, landscaping and boulevards. The road closure will remain throughout the remainder of the project, with the before mentioned roadway and driveway restrictions. It is anticipated that the road will re-open to traffic in June.
December 19, 2019The construction will continue until summer 2020 and the full road closure will remain in effect as well until that time. Only motorists requiring access to the properties in the road closure area will be permitted access. At times, direct access to driveways may be affected. Pedestrian access to properties will be maintained throughout the duration of this extended construction. An information bulletin will be delivered to affected property owners this week.
November 20, 2019Due to the ongoing
project challenges and the time of year the construction will continue through
the winter season. It is anticipated that the project will be completed in summer 2020.
October 31, 2019The project has been subject to a number of unforeseen challenges that has delayed the re-opening of Innisfil Street to the end of December 2019. The contractor will return in the spring to complete the final restoration works including sidewalk, asphalt and landscaping. The project is scheduled to be completed by June 2020.
August 14, 2019
Services including water, electricity and communication (telephone and internet) are not expected to be affected during this work. Should services needed to be temporarily impacted off during the work, the City will notify you in advance.
Pending budget utility relocations and permitting, the schedule is as follows:
The road closure is required due to the tight area constraints of the site. The new culvert will be constructed in generally the same location of the existing culvert. As well, the relatively narrow right of way means that through traffic can not be maintained during construction.
The road closure will remain in effect until summer 2020.
