Patrons of downtown businesses can park two hours for free during the Dunlop Street ‘big dig.’
They can park on the fourth floor of the Collier Street Parkade. There are 39 parking spots available for patrons of downtown businesses on P4 of the parkade. The free parking initiative will be in place until from now until Nov. 8.
All downtown Barrie businesses remain open during construction and all downtown parking lots are open.
The parkade is a fully accessible, brightly lit, 7-level facility. It is located on Collier Street between Clapperton and Owen streets. The parkade provides convenient access to both Collier and Dunlop streets and is within short walking distance to downtown shops, restaurants and the Five Points Theatre.
As part of the preliminary phase of construction, Dunlop Street is currently closed from Mulcaster to Poyntz streets, including the intersection of Dunlop and Mulcaster. A section of Dunlop from Mulcaster to Owen is also currently closed to vehicle traffic, but is open to pedestrian traffic and the on-street parking can still be used in this section. This closure is in effect until Nov. 8.
