County Road 93 Roundabout and Multi-Use Trail Phase 3

The County of Simcoe has awarded the contract to Georgian Paving Ltd. for the construction of the County Road 93 (CR 93) Roundabout and Multi-Use Trail Phase 3.

The work includes the construction of a two lane roundabout at the intersection of CR 93 and Vindin St/Golf Link Road as well as asphalt trail within the CR 93 right-of-way from Lanigan Drive to approximately 300 metres north of Vindin Street.

Georgian Construction plans to mobilize on April 26, 2021. The reconstruction work will continue through to November 15, 2021, and from May 1 to October 31, 2022.

Lane Restrictions

During road reconstruction operations, traffic speed will be reduced to 40 km/h through the work zone during construction.

Bypass lanes will be utilized where the roundabout construction is taking place. A minimum of two paved lanes (one each way) will remain open at all times on CR 93.
