Barrie Lakeshore Drive and Centennial Park Improvements

Barrie Lakeshore Drive and Centennial Park Improvements

The City of Barrie is realigning Lakeshore Drive and making improvements to Centennial Park along Kempenfelt Bay, Lake Simcoe.

The project involves transportation improvements (roadway and trails), bridge and culvert expansion, enhancements to Bunker’s and Dyment’s Creek, upgrades to parking lots and trails, and remodelling and landscape improvements in Centennial Park.

RiverStone’s role in this project includes aquatic and fisheries impact assessments, agency consulting and permitting, creek channel design and shoreline restoration, in-water work monitoring, and construction monitoring.

An active Snapping Turtle nest was discovered during the first phase of construction. The eggs were successfully salvaged by our qualified ecologist and relocated to an authorized agency. The hatchlings were successfully relocated to a new wetland in Barrie.
