Road Design Project

HNS Queens Park 
Neighbourhood Reconstruction Programs

The Historic Neighbourhood Strategy (HNS) Queens Park area reconstruction projects, A1 and B, are currently in the design phase. Together, these projects include the reconstruction of all infrastructure and roadways in Barrie's Queens Park Neighbourhood.

Neighbourhood Reconstruction Programs (NRPs) encompass multiple local roads that are in the same localized neighbourhood. All of the Right of Ways identified within each of the NRPs require similar type and amount of reconstruction work as many of the linear infrastructure (watermains, sanitary sewers and roads) were constructed in the early to mid 1950’s and have reached or nearing the end of their useful lives.

Roadways in these neighbourhoods were identified as candidates for full right of way reconstruction based on aggregated risk associated with surface and subsurface infrastructure. The Pavement Condition Index values rate the physical condition of these roadways in the range of fair to very poor, the majority of which are poor.

Given the age and deteriorated condition of infrastructure, other lifecycle strategies are not expected to significantly extend the existing remaining life of current assets.

Full reconstruction of the right of way will improve service levels to the community, allow the City to monitor the performance of the assets over time, and bundle the application of future lifecycle activities together. This will reduce capital and operating costs in the long term, minimize disruption to the community, and limit environmental damages from construction. Learn about pavement management.

HNS Queens Park A1 Neighbourhood Reconstruction Program

This project has moved to the construction phase, with construction from late 2022 to 2024. This project includes the reconstruction and upgrading of infrastructure and also the relocation of the Sophia Creek culvert into the Sophia Street Right of Way. Roadways include Mary Street (Wellington W to Sophia W), Maple Avenue (Wellington W to Sophia W) and Sophia Street West (Ross to Bayfield). The project also includes sidewalk replacements along with relocation of the Sophia Creek culvert to the Sophia Street Right of Way.

​Queen’s Park B Neighbourhood Reconstruction Program

Most of the subsurface infrastructure in this neighbourhood was constructed in the early 1910’s to 1930’s and is at or approaching the end of its maximum potential life. It has experienced age-related deterioration or physical failure (watermain breaks, sanitary lateral backups, etc.), and is in need of replacement.
