Construction Notice - Roundabout County Rd 56

County Road 21 and County Road 56 Intersection Improvements

The County of Simcoe has awarded the contract to Dufferin Construction for the construction of the County Road 21 and County Road 56 Intersection Improvements. 

The proposed construction limits are on County Road 21 and County Road 56 intersection, including approximately 400 meters of the approaches in each of the direction of the intersection.

The work includes construction of a roundabout, upgrades to stormwater pipes and structures as well as upgrades to electrical cables and grounding, driveway and road crossing culvert replacements, curb and gutter replacement, and asphalt paving.

Dufferin Construction plans to mobilize on July 31, 2023. The reconstruction work will continue through to November 30, 2023, and from May 1 to June 01, 2024.

Lane Restrictions

During road reconstruction operations, traffic speed will be reduced to 60 km/h through the work zone.

During various phases of the project, it will be necessary to close portions of County Road 56. Detour routes will be set up and advanced warning signs will be installed to warn motorists of the traffic disruptions. Additional correspondence and detour maps will be distributed to advise of the exact dates for road closures as the project progresses.

Exposed gravel driving surfaces may be encountered periodically during construction.

Pre-Condition Survey and Well Sampling

Oza Inspections and Thurber Engineering have been retained by the County to carry out precondition assessments and well condition surveys, sampling and monitoring of homes in close proximity to the construction activities. Please be advised that the pre-condition survey work and well inspection work is scheduled to begin the week of July 24, 2023.

How will I get to My Business?

The Contractor will maintain access to your business. On several occasions, however, direct access to CR 21 and CR 56 may be interrupted. The contractor will give prior notice of any access restrictions to the businesses. If you have any special needs for wheelchair access, please advise the CIMA+ Construction Inspector (Mark Douglin). Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.


Construction involves the use of heavy equipment and the unavoidable creation of obstacles. We ask that you caution your children to stay clear of the working area. We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.
