Construction of a deep sanitary sewer and watermain

Barrie's Mapleview Drive East will be closed from Huronia Road to Country Lane starting Monday, Dec. 5 for two weeks.

The full closure is required for construction of a deep sanitary sewer and watermain.

As opposed to a lane reduction, this allows the city to finish the work quicker and save money.

The detour route will be along Yonge Street, Big Bay Point Road and Huronia Road. The contractor will work 24 hours per day until the work is finished.

Mapleview East's closure also affects Barrie Transit.

Route 8 will not service Mapleview Drive East between Yonge Street and Huronia Road, and will detour onto Lockhart Road then back on route.

There will be a shuttle service route that will continue to provide transit services to the missed stops along Mapleview Drive East, between Yonge Street and Huronia Road, during peak service periods Monday to Saturday. This shuttle service will provide direct transit service connections to all GO train departures and arrivals.
