Dunsmore walkway closed for construction (Barrie Campus)

Published on Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014

RVH needs to expand and pave a staff parking lot at the rear of the building. To accommodate construction, the walking path that runs from Dunsmore Lane to Gallie Court will be shut for approximately 12 weeks, beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Signs will be posted at either end of the walkway.

Those who use the walking path may detour along Cheltenham Road (Cheltenham Road is south of Dunsmore, across from Cheltenham Park). This path leads directly to the Barrie Campus, entering near the student residence.

We apologize for the inconvenience; however Ministry of Labour laws dictate that the path must be closed during the construction period.

When re-opened, the Dunsmore pathway will be paved and lit, making it much more accessible and safer.
