City reopening section of Lakeshore Dr. to vehicle traffic starting June 12

(Barrie, ON) The northbound lane of Lakeshore Drive from the Tiffin Boat Launch to Victoria Street will reopen to vehicles on Friday, June 12. 

This part of the roadway was temporarily converted into additional space for pedestrians and cyclists as a pilot project to provide more space for people to be active and enjoy the outdoors, while maintaining a safe physical distance. The pilot showed that the additional space was not being used as much as anticipated. As well, as businesses reopen as part of the province's Phase 2 plans, opening the road will allow for better traffic flow and access to parking lots.
