REMINDER: Section of Mapleview Drive, east of Yonge, Closing Monday For About a Month

New sewer and watermain needed to meet expected demand of new subdivisions and school

What’s that old saying? When one section of Mapleview opens, another one closes?

The City of Barrie says that Mapleview Drive will be completely shut down from Yonge St. to Royal Jubilee Dr. in the south of Barrie as of November 25. The closure is to be put in place to allow for the installation of sanitary sewer infrastructure and a new watermain for new developments in the area.

Public Transit Affected

Barrie Transit Route 3 will detour via Griffin Gate/Majesty Blvd & Prince William Way. As a result, bus stops 514, 515, 522, 596, 597 and 602 will be out of service. In addition, a shuttle bus will be provided during GO Train times.

Motorists are encouraged to use Big Bay Point Road as a detour.

The closure is expected to last until late December. This comes as sections of Mapleview Drive at Madelaine reopen following weeks of work expanding the roadway and adding new plumbing.
