Georgian Paving is about to launch $9 million in road construction work in the Town of Innisfil, just south of Barrie, in September.

Five contractors were prequalified and four responded to a Request for tenders. The $9.07 million road rehabilitation program contract was awarded to Georgian Paving, a division of Miller Paving Ltd.

Work includes:

  • Resurfacing and roadside safety upgrades to 5th Line from Yonge Street to 10th Sideroad, 9th Line from 20th Sideroad to Yonge Street and 10th Line from Yonge Street to 10th Sideroad
  • Resurfacing and active transportation on Gilford Road from 20th Sideroad to Beach Road
  • Replacement of distribution slabs and patching on 9th Line and 10th Line culvert structures
  • Waterproofing and patching of culvert structure on 5th Line

While staff expected construction earlier in the year, work was delayed due to prequalifying contractors first and extended timelines to obtain permits from the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) and Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA), tendering of the construction contract was delayed to the summer. The roadwork and structures on 9th Line and 10th Line are anticipated to be completed this fall and the work on 5th Line and Gilford Road will commence in the Spring of 2023 with completion anticipated for Fall 2023.
