News release from the City of Barrie

The City of Barrie’s pavement marking contractor will start the annual painting of road lane markings across Barrie. This includes white lane lines, bike lanes, and yellow centre lines. This work takes place each year to make roads safer for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

This work will begin this evening (Monday, May 29) and will continue for approximately five weeks. The painting typically takes place overnight, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. Intersection painting, which includes stop bars and crosswalks, will also take place over the next few months and will run until October.

Drivers are reminded to obey all signs during line painting operations.
