The City of Barrie Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan identified Yonge Street as a key transportation corridor and recommended several transportation improvements to accommodate the growth of Barrie to 2031.
Transportation improvements include reconstruction and widening of Yonge Street to 5 lanes, a cycle-track and a sidewalk, between Mapleview Drive and Lockhart Road.
The purpose of this project is to implement the preferred servicing solution as recommended by the
Municipal Class EA 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 Yonge Street between Mapleview Drive East and Lockhart Road (approx. 1.4 km) Contract administration, construction inspection, commissioning and warranty administration for these projects are provisional items.
The preferred design alternative for Yonge Street includes the following:
The following figure shows the typical design cross-section for the new Yonge Street Right-of-Way (ROW).
Phases 3 & 4 of the Municipal Class EA 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. Subsequent to 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 (Hewitt Secondary Plan Area Transportation Improvements).
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:
