The City of Barrie is issuing a full road closure of a section of Mapleview Drive East as a continuation of ongoing development.
From March 2nd until approximately May 15th, Mapleview Drive will be closed from Yonge Street to Royal Jubilee Drive.
The city decided to have a full closure for a longer period of time, rather than opening and closing small sections for weeks at a time, to ensure safer driving conditions.
The project is meant to get the infrastructure in place for future service developments, like a new high school planned for south Barrie.
Barrie Transit stops 515, 522 and 596 will be out of service during the closure and Route 3 will detour around the closure.
A GO shuttle service will also be in place to get commuters to and from Barrie South Station.
