Why come to the open house?

This is your opportunity to view project information, including maps and schedules. We invite you to talk with City staff and consultants working on the project so that you can ask questions and clarify plans including traffic changes, timing and property access.

Reconstruction begins late July

Reconstruction is expected to begin late July and be completed by December. Motorists are asked to follow marked detours as traffic will be reduced through the work zone. Local access to residences and businesses is expected to be maintained throughout the project.

About the project

Map of area of construction The City will be reconstructing Wyndham Street South from York Road to the bridge that runs over the Speed River just south of Wellington Street East. Work will include the installation of sanitary sewers, storm sewer, watermain, curb and gutter, sidewalks, bike lanes and on–street parking. Final road design will provide one lane for vehicular traffic in each direction and on–road bicycle lanes as recommended by the Cycling Master Plan.

The Cycling Master Plan is a 10-year strategy to make cycling easier, safer and more accessible in Guelph by building a connected network of on– and off–road bike facilities throughout Guelph. It is part of the City of Guelph’s efforts to support sustainable transportation, relieve traffic congestion, and make mobility accessible to all road users. Adding bike lanes to Wyndham Street will also help to make Wyndham a route that accommodates all road users including public transit, cycling, pedestrians and vehicles.

The City of Guelph appreciates your patience and understanding as we complete this important infrastructure project.
