This City is reconstructing Stevenson Street from Grange Street to Bennett Avenue. The reconstruction includes replacement and upgrading of the sanitary sewer, storm sewer, watermain, curb and gutter, sidewalk, driveway aprons, bike lanes and asphalt roadway. Final road design will provide one lane for 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 the city. 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 Stevenson Street will also help to make Stevenson 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.
