Road Design Project, EN1255

Huronia Road Transportation Improvements & Trunk Sanitary Sewer

The City of Barrie Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan identified Huronia Road as a key transportation corridor and recommended several transportation improvements to accommodate the growth of Barrie to 2031.

Recommendations include reconstruction and widening of Huronia Road to include a paved shoulder, and a new trunk sanitary sewer between Lockhart Road and the south City limits.

The purpose of this project is to implement the preferred servicing solution as recommended by the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. See background.

The City of Barrie has retained Ainley & Associates for the provision of engineering services for the preliminary and detailed design of the preferred alternative design solution for Huronia Road between Lockhart Road and the south City Limit (approx. 2.1 km). Contract administration, construction inspection, commissioning and warranty administration for these projects are provisional items.

Project Features

The preferred design alternative for Huronia Road includes the following:

  • Reconstruction of the roadway;
  • 2 m wide shoulders (1 m paved) on both sides of the roadway;
  • Remove LID features;
  • Construction of new trunk sanitary sewer (900 mm); and
  • Improvements to the traffic signal at McKay Rd E and Huronia Rd as well as Lockhart Rd and Huronia Rd

Environmental Assessment (EA) Study

Phases 3 & 4 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment 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. After 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 (Salem Secondary Plan Area Transportation Improvements).

Public Information Centre

A Public Information Centre (PIC) was held on November 14, 2018 to present the proposed improvements and seek community feedback. The PIC 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. Please see the following links for details on the PIC:
