A Christmas present for drivers in south Barrie.
Fairview Road between Little Avenue and Bayview Drive has reopened following an extended construction closure.
Fairview closed in June and was to reopen in October but lousy weather caused delays.
What you will notice on Fairview, the road has been raised 11 metres to allow for the Harvey Road/Highway 400 overpass.
The overpass should open in Fall 2020 and is expected to ease congestion on routes already gummed up with traffic such as Essa Road and Mapleview Drive.
