Because of resurfacing happening on West Street the Orillia Transit Terminal will be temporarily relocated to the Peter Street and Mississaga Street intersection from Sept. 24 to Oct. 7, 2023.
To accommodate the volume of day-time traffic in the area, the West Street resurfacing work will be completed during evenings and overnight. However, to ensure a consistent location for the transit terminal, the terminal will operate from the temporary location throughout the day and during the evening hours for the entire period of the project.
During the temporary transit terminal relocation, signs will be installed on Peter Street North and Peter Street South to identify the locations for each bus to riders. The relocation will affect the Colborne Street Tim Hortons’s South Route bus stop. This stop will serve inbound to the temporary terminal instead of outbound..
The West Street resurfacing work is part of several road resurfacing projects approved during the 2023 budget. In addition to West Street, resurfacing will take place on Calverley Street, John Street, Barrie Road, Simcoe Street and Memorial Avenue. The work will include milling and resurfacing from mid-September to mid-October (weather dependent). Notices will be provided directly to area residents and businesses in advance of each resurfacing project.
