This new infrastructure project will support growth and development near the McKay Rd and Veteran’s Dr intersection in south-west Barrie.
The project extends along McKay Rd from east of Veteran’s Dr to west of the future Reid Dr extension and along Veteran’s Dr from south of McKay, northerly to Salem Rd. The project includes roadway expansion on McKay Rd including intersection improvements at McKay and Veteran’s, and new watermains, and sanitary sewers along McKay Rd and Veteran’s Dr.
This project is underway with site preparation work already started. The road closure of McKay Rd and Veteran's Dr is planned for May 24th, 2022 and is anticipated to last until November 2023. No traffic will be permitted within the work area during the road closure period.
This project is the first phase of new infrastructure expansion to support development north and south of McKay Rd in the
Salem Secondary Plan Area. Through this construction project water and wastewater service will be extended south from Salem Rd along Veteran’s Dr, then westerly along McKay Rd.
Additionally, with the significant residential development planned, the project will enhance McKay Rd by widening the roadway, adding new concrete sidewalks, a raised cycle track, and local stormwater management improvements. The road improvements also include intersection expansion and an upgraded McKay and Veteran’s intersection.
Public notice was completed in the form of newspaper ads and mailed Notice Letters to affected residents. McKay Road and Veteran’s Drive Improvements PIC Presentation was posted on the City’s YouTube Channel and the Presentation Slides were also available for review.
