DESIGN PROJECT

Bayview Dr & Big Bay Point Rd
Transportation Improvements

The City of Barrie Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan (MMATMP) identified Bayview Drive and Big Bay Point Road as key transportation corridors and recommended several transportation improvements to accommodate the growth of Barrie to 2031.

The City of Barrie has retained C.C. Tatham & Associates Ltd. for the provision of engineering services for the preliminary and detailed design of Bayview Drive, from Little Avenue to Big Bay Point Road (approximately 1.4 km) and Big Bay Point Road from Bayview Drive to Huronia Road (approximately 1.3 km).

Contract administration, construction inspection, commissioning and warranty administration for both projects are provisional items.

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to implement the preferred servicing solution as recommended by the Municipal Class EA process. Phases 3 & 4 of the Municipal Class EA process were completed for the study area in consideration of the physical, natural, cultural/heritage, social and economic environments.

The proposed design alternatives were evaluated in consideration of these criteria. Subsequent to this analysis and the agency and public input provided, the preferred design alternatives were chosen.

The corresponding Environmental Study Report can be found under Completed Environmental Assessment Studies.
