Road Design Project

Bryne Drive New Road

This project is split into a North segment (Harvie Road to Essa Road) and a South segment (Harvie Road to Caplan Avenue). This roadway supports the new Harvie Road / Big Bay Point Road Highway 400 Crossing and will improve traffic flow across the south end of Barrie.

The scope of this project includes planning for the construction of the unopened portion of Bryne Drive South between Harvie Road and Caplan Avenue, and construction of the unopened portion of Bryne Drive North between Harvie Road and Essa Road.
