2024 Pavement Management Program

Project Type
Road Construction
Status
In Progress
Estimated Completion
November 2024

The annual Pavement Management Program uses different treatments to extend a road's service life. A mix of proactive and reactive pavement management strategies are used, depending on the condition of the road and subsurface infrastructure (sewers and watermains). The focus is to apply the right pavement maintenance strategy to the right road, at the right time. 

Information bulletins will be mailed to impacted residences and businesses ahead of construction, providing information specific to the impacted street.

A closure on Dunlop Street East (50m west of Poyntz to Duckworth) is rescheduled to July 22 through July 25, 7am–7pm. The road will fully reopen at the end of each working day. This restriction is required to remove and repair the existing roadway.

View the road closure map for more details.

To complete the work, daily temporary lane closures, restrictions and shifts are expected to take place along these streets between 7am–7pm. A July 2024 information bulletin has been distributed to nearby residences and businesses. This contract also includes work on some of the 2024 holding strategies road segments. 

Road Resurfacing

Road resurfacing is proactive, and mainly involves the repair of defects, such as cracks, and rutting found in the top layers of the road. The goal is to proactively prevent roads from deteriorating to the point they would require more extensive and costly rehabilitation, and/or reconstruction.

End of Life Pavement Replacement

Full pavement replacement is a reactive approach, which is used when roads are at end of life. End of life pavement replacement involves relatively minor investments to achieve a service improvement until more permanent improvements can be made as part of the capital plan. A road may need to be fully repaved when the existing roadway has significant deterioration, cracking is extensive and would show through if only partially resurfaced or the existing pavement depths prohibit partial resurfacing.

Affected Services

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

Barrie Transit: Should there be impacts on transit service, they will be posted at myridebarrie.ca/news and at impacted bus stops. Please call Service Barrie at 705-739-4242 with any questions.

Curbside Collection: If required, the contractor will take curbside collection materials outside the construction zone for pickup by the collection contractor. Emptied containers will be returned to the appropriate driveway. Please ensure to always have materials curbside by 7am and mark your address on all containers with permanent marker.

Traffic Impacts

Minor traffic impacts should be expected. Impacted road segments or lanes may be closed and traffic will be detoured if required. We ask for your patience in such instances. ​

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 while construction vehicles maneuver.  The contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restriction. Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.

Safety

The contractors' work will be focused within the travelled roadway. Although the contractor is required to conduct their work in a safe manner, we ask that motorists take extra caution during the construction period.
