Affected Services

Water, Sanitary Sewer, Hydro, Telephone, Cable TV, and Gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.Construction for this project should not affect Barrie Transit routes or schedules as a full closure is not anticipated; should there be impacts on transit service, they will be posted at and at impacted stops.

Curbside Collection

On the normal curbside collection day, impacted residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of your property as usual. If required, the contractor will take curbside collection materials outside the construction zone for pickup by the collection contractor. Emptied containers will be returned to the appropriate driveway. Please ensure to always have materials curbside by 7am and mark your address on all containers with permanent marker. It is very important that you take your garbage, organics and recyclable items to the front of your property by 7am, otherwise these items might not be picked up.


The contractors' work will be focused within the travelled roadway. Although the contractor is required to conduct their work in a safe manner, we ask that motorists take extra caution during the construction period.

Access to Properties

All reasonable efforts will be made to maintain vehicle access to driveways. However, there may be some temporary interruptions to access during construction while construction vehicles maneuver.  The contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restriction. Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.

Traffic Impacts   

Minor traffic impacts should be expected. We ask for your patience in such instances. The contractor will use traffic control measures to permit through traffic through the construction site.  Typically, this will include using traffic control people and traffic cones to direct drivers around the contractor’s vehicles.
