The City of Barrie announced that the infrastructure located around the Edgehill/Cedar Pointe Drive/Dunlop Street/Hart Drive area needs to be relocated to prepare for the upcoming Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO)’s interchange and bridge replacement project at Highway 400 and Dunlop Street.

This sanitary sewer construction project will be starting in the next few weeks, and will take approximately a year to complete.

The work will start on Hart Drive before crossing the highway to Dunlop Street, then work will progress to the Dunlop/Cedar Pointe Drive intersection, and will move along to Edgehill Drive. Detours will be in place and Barrie Transit routes 5 and 6 will be detoured during the work.

The work will include the following:

  • Cedar Pointe Drive will be closed for approximately three months. Businesses along Cedar Pointe Drive will remain open for business throughout the duration of construction, but Cedar Pointe Drive will be closed and access to businesses will only be from Edgehill Drive.
  • Lane restrictions will take place on Hart Drive. All businesses along Hart Drive will remain open throughout construction.
  • The Cedar Pointe Drive/Edgehill Drive intersection will be fully closed for approximately three months.

The project is a key part to prepare for the MTO’s work for the Dunlop Street bridge replacement. At the completion of this project (summer 2024), the MTO will start the Dunlop bridge replacement project, which is expected to take approximately four years to complete.
