Motorists have had reason to curse Barrie’s Anne Street North not once but twice during the past week or so.
It was closed between Donald Street/Wellington West Street and Henry Street on Oct. 10 from 7 p.m. until about midnight for underground sewer infrastructure repairs.
Then Anne Street North was closed, between Donald Street/Wellington West Street and Dunlop Street West, once more for underground sewer infrastructure repairs, earlier this week.
Sherry Diemert, the city’s infrastructure director, said the Oct. 15-16 had closure was required to repair underground infrastructure.
The repairs were completed and the cost was roughly $30,000, she said, which will be paid from the city’s wastewater operating budget.
“There will be lane restrictions for a few nights over the next couple weeks as crews complete sanitary sewer relining and asphalt resurfacing,” Diemert said.
