Waterworks Place to Victoria Road

The City of Guelph is hosting an open house to present 2017-2018 construction plans for the York Trunk Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Feeder Main project. Work in this phase will take place between Boult Avenue and Victoria Road, through Florence Lane between Hays Avenue and Victoria Road, including work along the recreational trails, and a complete reconstruction of Brockville Avenue.

Tuesday, October 3, 2017
5:00–7:30 p.m.
Guelph Little Theatre, B. Slater Hall

Why come to the open house?Construction will take place near Lyon Park off of York Road on Brockville Avenue, Florence Lane and the Royal Recreation Trail that runs beside the Eramosa River. The Trail will be closed from Victoria Road to Waterworks Place. Work begins in late fall 2017 and continues until spring 2018.

This is your opportunity to view project information, including maps and schedules, and to ask questions about traffic impacts and access to properties including:

  • The closure of the Royal Recreation Trail in Eramosa River Park from Waterworks Place to Victoria Road from fall 2017 to spring 2018;
  • The closure of Brockville Avenue starting in early spring 2018 (local access to be maintained)
  • The planned use of micro tunnelling on Florence Lane which will remain open.

We encourage you to come and talk with City staff and external experts about this project and to ask any questions you may have.
