Eastbound lane closure on Waterloo Avenue starts October 19

Waterloo Avenue at Essex Street

Manhole reconstruction is taking place at Waterloo Avenue just west of Essex Street. Manholes are generally located in the driving portions of the roadway and are exposed to heavy volumes of traffic which results in structure failure.

Construction begins on Waterloo Avenue October 19

Construction will begin on or about October 19 at 7 a.m. with the road reopening the same day, weather permitting.

Traffic and parking impacts

Eastbound traffic on Waterloo Avenue will be detoured via Edinburgh Road, Wellington Street and Gordon Street. Construction will not impact westbound traffic on Waterloo Avenue. Pedestrian access will be open in both directions.

There will be no parking available on Essex Street during construction to accommodate detoured transit routes. Parking on Dublin Street will be restricted to the east side only between Waterloo Avenue and Essex Street. There will be an eastbound road closure on Waterloo Avenue at Essex Street. Traffic will be detoured via Edinburgh Road South, Wellington Street and Gordon Street.

Property access and parking

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.) Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property and delays should be expected.

Guelph Transit

Guelph Transit route 9 will be temporarily detoured during construction. Visit for information about stop changes and route detours.

City services

There will be no interruption to any City services during construction. Waste collection will not be affected. Please continue to place your green, blue and grey carts at the curb, as per your regular schedule.

The City appreciates your patience, understanding and co-operation during this important construction project. Project details and any updates will be posted on
