Road Design Project

​Eugenia Street Reconstruction

The reconstruction of Eugenia Street (Berczy to Duckworth), Albert Street (Eugenia to Codrington) and Dundonald Street (Eugenia to Codrington).

This work includes roadway and sidewalk reconstruction, the replacement of the sanitary and stormwater infrastructure, watermain replacement including the sanitary and water service to the property line.​

​This project will renew the life of the deteriorating roadway and underground infrastructure in the area as well as increase the water network capacity for the area for future growth of the city. This project will expand and upgrade the storm and sanitary sewer networks to meet City standards.

Project Updates

June 2021: Design is currently 30-60% complete.

​​Low Impact Development Opportunities

In an effort to reduce the quantity & improve the quality of stormwater runoff, the City of Barrie is considering implementing green infrastructure in this project including the installation of bioretention cells in the boulevard.

A bioretention cell design would promote infiltration into the soil by holding a small quantity of water in the boulevard. The bioretention cell would be designed to hold water at a shallow depth in the boulevard for a maximum of 48 hours before infiltrating into the soil.

  • The bioretention cell would include grasses and/or shrubbery to ensure a natural look in a residential area.
  • ​A grass sod system may be used to allow the homeowner to continue to maintain the device within their boulevard.

See additional Information on bioretention cells.

If you are interested in having stormwater friendly designs incorporated in your boulevard or interested in learning more about low impact development opportunities, please contact Jeff Henry,  Engineering Project Manager, at  705-739-4220 x4592 or jeff.henry@barrie.ca.

​Notable Design Considerations

  • Proposed 1.5 m sidewalk 1.25 m off curb on north side of Eugenia Street from Albert Street to Dundonald Street.
  • ​Proposed 1.5 m sidewalk 1.5 m off curb on east side of Dundonald Street from Codrington Street to Eugenia Street.
  • ​Proposed 1.8 m curbside sidewalk on east side of Albert Street from Eugenia Street to Codrington Street.
  • The design includes a redesign of the Eugenia Street /Duckworth intersection to straighten Eugenia Street through to St Vincent Street and have Duckworth Street stop at Eugenia Street, which increases pedestrian safety.​

Impacted Services

Generally, services will not be affected. Services such as Bell, Rogers, Enbridge and Alectra should not be affected. Occasional impacts to drinking water will occur as the existing watermain and services to property line are being replaced. Specific information on affected services will be distributed closer to construction.

Barrie Transit & school buses will continue to operate in the area through construction. Bus stop locations near the construction limits may be slightly impacted if necessary.​

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. Access will be restored as quickly as possible. Advanced notification will be provided to property owners prior to any driveway access restriction.

Pedestrian access will be maintained during construction.

Traffic Impacts

During the construction, some short delays (e.g. a few minutes) while driving through the construction area can be expected while equipment is maneuvering, trucks are dumping, etc. We ask for your patience in such instances.
