New electronic sign will help Hwy. 400 traffic through Barrie

BARRIE, Ont. -- The province is spending more than $800,000 to install an electronic traffic-condition sign on Hwy.


BARRIE, Ont. — The province is spending more than $800,000 to install an electronic traffic-condition sign on Hwy. 400, to improve safety and traffic flow through the Duckworth Street interchange.

The changeable-message sign will be installed on the northbournd lane of Hwy. 400, about one kilometre east of the Duckworth Street ramp.

“Drivers will benefit from the new sign’s ability to warn them of accidents, congestion or delays ahead,” says the provincial transportation minister, Norm Sterling. “This will help commuters find the safest and most efficient route to their destination.”

The new electronic signboard is part of a larger initiative launched this fall to improve road safety on Hwys. 400 and 69. Permanent electronic changeable message signs will be installed at strategic locations along the Hwy. 69/400 corridor. As well, Hwy. 69 is being widened.
