Road Design Project

​Mapleview Drive East Transportation Improvements

Yonge Street to Prince William Way

As a key transportation corridor, Mapleview Drive East will undergo several transportation improvements to accommodate the growth of Barrie to 2031.

This includes reconstruction and widening of Mapleview Drive East to 4 lanes, between Yonge Street and Prince William Way. The purpose of this project is to implement the preferred servicing solution as recommended by the Municipal Class EA process.

The City of Barrie has retained HATCH for the provision of engineering services for the preliminary and detailed design of the preferred alternative design solution for Mapleview Drive East between Yonge Street and Prince William Way (approx. 1.4 km)

Project Features

The design concept includes: 

  • Reconstruction and widening of the roadway to 4 through lanes, (2 per direction) with a centre median;
  • Addition of a multi-use trail on the north side;
  • Addition of a sidewalk on the south side;
  • Addition of buffered bike lanes;
  • Grade separation of roadway and Metrolinx GO Rail Corridor;
  • Implementation of storm and sanitary sewers;
  • LID features;
  • Street lighting; and
  • Improvements to the intersection at Yonge Street

Schedule

At the time of EA study completion (November 2017), it was proposed to construct the roadway improvements and the grade separation at the same time, commencing construction in 2023.  Due to changes in project priorities and funding availability, the project will be phased such that the roadway improvements are undertaken as originally planned, with an upgraded at-grade crossing, and the grade separation will be undertaken by Metrolinx in accordance with their capital plan, which currently anticipates the grade separation need in 2037.

Background

The City of Barrie Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan (MMATMP) identified Mapleview Drive East as a key transportation corridor and recommended several transportation improvements to accommodate the growth of Barrie to 2031. 

The City of Barrie subsequently conducted an Environmental Assessment and filed the Environmental Study Report for the transportation improvements of Mapleview Drive between Yonge Street and Prince William Way in November 2017.  

The Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act and allows municipalities to follow a streamlined process when undertaking municipal infrastructure projects.

The corresponding Environmental Study Report can be found under Completed Environmental Assessment Studies (Hewitt Secondary Plan Area Transportation Improvements).
