Sewer issues led to closures on Anne St., more work coming

Repairs have cost city around $30,000; lane restrictions happening in 'next couple weeks' as crews complete work in the area, says official
A section of Anne Street North, near Henry Street approaching the Highway 400 bridge, has been closed twice in the last week or so.

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.
