Affected Services

There will be two minor power outages affecting the public washrooms and the Barrie Yacht Club: one in August, one in September.

Sanitary sewer, hydro, telephone, Cable TV, and Gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Water service will be interrupted for a short time to switch your service over to the new watermain.  Notice of the timing of any water interruptions will be provided to you in advance of such occurrences.

Curbside Collection: On the normal curbside collection day, residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of your property as usual.  The construction contractor will remove these items and take them to outside of the construction zone, for pickup by the City’s waste pickup contractor. Your garbage cans, organics bin and recycling boxes will be returned to your property later that day. Please mark your address on all of your containers. It is important that you take your refuse and recyclable items to the front of your property by 7am, otherwise these items might not be picked up.

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. The Contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restrictions to the businesses and residents. Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.


The contractor is required to conduct his work in a safe manner, including fencing of deep excavations, etc.  We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety
