Road construction Project

Kidd’s Creek Restoration

The City of Barrie has partnered with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) to design and reconstruct the upper portion of Kidd’s Creek from the Lillian Crescent storm sewer outlet to Cundles Road.

The purpose of this work is to restore the health of the creek by taking a proactive ecological approach​. The result will have a positive effect on the restoration of Lake Simcoe’s tributaries. The work includes the following:

  • Spot treatments
  • Channel realignment
  • Floodplain expansion
  • Removal of a berm; and
  • Tree removal and replanting

Estimated Construction Start Date; July 22, 2019

Public Information Centre (PIC) was held December 6, 2018 to present the proposed improvements and seek community feedback. This was an informal drop-in session where participants were able to review information presented, ask questions of City staff and the design team, and provide feedback to help guide the finalization of the design.

Project Update - October 18, 2019
The project is on schedule and nearing completion. The excavation and realignment is complete, including a number of creek improvements. There are a few deficiencies to be completed, which is to be expected in this type of project, and all the trees and shrubs are still to be planted. The outstanding work should be completed within a couple weeks, weather dependent.
