Downey Road lane marking: expect delays June 26-28

The City is preparing to paint the centre lane on Downey Road between Woodland Glen Drive and Teal Drive. Weather permitting, the work is expected to be completed by June 28.

Traffic impacts, property access and parking

Two-way traffic and access to driveways will be maintained, but motorists can expect delays in the area.

Bike lanes postponed

The City’s mission is to plan, design and build safe and efficient transportation systems so people can walk, bike, drive and enjoy travelling in, out and around the city.

In response to concerns from residents who believe removing on-street parking and adding bike lanes could lead to more traffic and speeding on Downey Road, Guelph City Council will discuss plans the road during a meeting on July 28, 2014 at 7 p.m.

Anyone wishing to address Council during the meeting regarding plans for Downey Road must register by 9 a.m. on Friday, July 25. Written comments are also welcome at the email or mailing address below:
