HNS Queens Park A1 
Neighbourhood Reconstruction Program

The Historic Neighbourhood Strategy (HNS) Queens Park area reconstruction projects include the reconstruction of all infrastructure and roadways in Barrie's Queens Park Neighbourhood.

The Queen’s Park B Neighbourhood Reconstruction Program is currently in the design phase.

The HNS Queens Park A1 neighbourhood contains some of the oldest infrastructure in Barrie. This project includes the reconstruction and upgrading of infrastructure and also includes the relocation of the Sophia Creek culvert into the Sophia Street Right of Way.

Impacted Roadways

  • Mary Street
    Wellington W to Sophia W
  • Maple Avenue
    Wellington W to Sophia W
  • Sophia Street West
    Ross to Bayfield

Project Features

  • Pavement
  • Watermain
  • Sanitary sewer
  • Storm sewer
  • Sidewalk replacements along with relocation of the Sophia Creek culvert to the Sophia Street Right of Way.


  • Design Began: 2018
  • Construction Begins: Late 2022
  • Construction Ends: 2024

About Neighbourhood Reconstruction Programs

Neighbourhood Reconstruction Programs (NRPs) encompass multiple local roads that are in the same localized neighbourhood. All of the Right of Ways identified within each of the NRPs require similar type and amount of reconstruction work as many of the linear infrastructure (watermains, sanitary sewers and roads) were constructed in the early to mid 1950’s and have reached or nearing the end of their useful lives.

Roadways in these neighbourhoods were identified as candidates for full right of way reconstruction based on aggregated risk associated with surface and subsurface infrastructure. The Pavement Condition Index values rate the physical condition of these roadways in the range of fair to very poor, the majority of which are poor.

Given the age and deteriorated condition of infrastructure, other lifecycle strategies are not expected to significantly extend the existing remaining life of current assets.

Full reconstruction of the right of way will improve service levels to the community, allow the City to monitor the performance of the assets over time, and bundle the application of future lifecycle activities together. This will reduce capital and operating costs in the long term, minimize disruption to the community, and limit environmental damages from construction. Learn about pavement management.
