Background

The reconstruction of York Road from Wyndham Street to Ontario Street implements one stage of the York Road Environmental Assessment (EA) completed in 2007. As a truck and Guelph Transit route, York Road is a critical arterial road in Guelph. The York Road EA was completed to address travel needs along York Road. The EA identified the improvements to be made along York Road from Wyndham Street to the eastern city limit, east of Watson Road. The York Road environmental design study will identify the design options for improvements from Victoria to the eastern city limits.
