Lakeshore Drive In Barrie CLOSED – Tiffin to Simcoe

Just For The Week

A heads up for motorists in the city. Starting Monday morning Lakeshore Drive will be closed in both directions from Tiffin to Simcoe Street until Friday. The detour route will be along Bradford Street. Pedestrians can cross at Victoria to access the Marina and the Tiffin Boat Launch will remain open. The closure is necessary for asphalt repairs.

Also this week, work on the Centennial Park Improvements will ramp up. More fencing will be installed at the north end of the park on Thursday, Sept. 22 and in about two weeks fencing will be installed in the area of the playground. The fencing will prevent access to the open green space in the park, however, some areas will remain open and accessible throughout construction. They include the pedestrian and cycle trail, public washrooms, the beach and playground – except the swings, which will be removed in October.
