Lots of activity around Old Barrie Road and Highway 11/12 as part of the intersection improvement project begins.
Orillia is required to cut down about 1 hectare of trees along a narrow strip to allow the future road realignment.
The affected area has been examined to ensure any tree species of interest will not be impacted.
The tree cutting and removal will last about a week.
Traffic shouldn’t be impacted.
The $2.5 million Old Barrie Road Intersection Improvement Project includes various road and intersection improvements at the Highway 11/12 interchange at Old Barrie Road, including road realignment and off-ramp extensions.
