Maple­view Drive clo­sure ex­tended

The Barrie Examiner - - NEWS -

(STAFF) — Due to ex­ten­u­at­ing cir­cum­stances, the Maple­view Drive East full road clo­sure will be ex­tended one ad­di­tional day, un­til to­day at 7 p.m.

The con­trac­tor ran into some in­stal­la­tion is­sues with re­spect to the sewer pipe and ex­ist­ing util­i­ties at Maple­view Drive. The rain­fall also ex­ac­er­bated the back­fill­ing op­er­a­tion and es­sen­tially de­layed com­ple­tion of the cross­ing as sched­uled.

All the pipe and man­holes have now been in­stalled, and the con­trac­tor is back­fill­ing the 45-foot wide, eight-foot deep trench.

Maple­view has been closed since Oct. 2 be­tween Yonge Street and Royal Ju­bilee to in­stall a trunk san­i­tary sewer that will serve the fu­ture needs of the He­witt’s Sec­ondary Plan­ning Area.

The full clo­sure is nec­es­sary in or­der to limit the du­ra­tion of con­struc­tion and en­sure pub­lic safety in the work zone.

The de­tour route is via Prince Wil­liam Way, Big Bay Point Road and Yonge Street with an al­ter­nate de­tour route via the 20th side Road, Lock­hart Road and Yonge Street. Ac­cess to all lo­cal busi­nesses will be main­tained dur­ing the clo­sure. Signs for the clo­sure are cur­rently in place.

Bar­rie Tran­sit’s Route 4 will not be able to ser­vice the Barre South GO Sta­tion, but GO train rid­ers can take Route 4 to the Al­lan­dale Go Sta­tion.

Route 4B will end at Royal Ju­bilee Drive and change to Route 4A and then de­tour onto Royal Ju­bilee Drive, Sun King Cres­cent, Majesty Boule­vard and back on route trav­el­ling north­bound onto Prince Wil­liam Way.

The fol­low­ing bus stops on Route 4 will be out of ser­vice: #725 (Bar­rie South GO Sta­tion), #515 (Royal Ju­bilee Drive), and #596 (Grif­fin Gate), #552 (Yonge Street).
