Stevenson Street northbound lanes closed starting week of Aug 24

Three month closure on Stevenson from Elizabeth to Grange

About the project

Map showing affected section of Stevenson Street from Elizabeth to Grange with detour routeThe City is reconstructing Stevenson Street, from Elizabeth Street to Grange Street, as it replaces important underground sewer and water pipes. Final roadway reconstruction includes a lane reduction from four lanes to two, with the addition of on–road bicycle lanes and sidewalks, curbs and gutters. The addition of these bike lanes is a recommendation of the 2013 Cycling Master Plan and will provide a north-south connection between Elizabeth and Grange.

Construction begins week of August 24

Construction starts the week of August 24 and is expected to end in December, weather permitting.

Lane closures and detours

Northbound lanes on Stevenson Street will be closed throughout the construction period. Northbound traffic will be detoured onto Victoria Road and Grange Road.

During construction, southbound traffic on Stevenson Street will be reduced to one lane. Motorists travelling through the work area should expect delays.

Property access and inspections

Access to homes and businesses will be maintained by southbound travel during the reconstruction. When access to driveways is restricted, residents and businesses will be provided with notice and direction for parking on nearby streets.

OZA Inspections Ltd. may contact property owners in the area to arrange an interior/exterior inspection of homes and buildings. This inspection is a proactive measure to assess property condition ahead of the start of construction.

The City of Guelph appreciates your patience, understanding and co-operation during this important infrastructure renewal project. Construction information and updates are available on the City’s website at

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 will also help to make Stevenson a street that accommodates all road users, including public transit, cycling, pedestrians and vehicles.
