Work is expected to begin on Monday, January 22 and will take about three weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Two-way traffic on Victoria Road South to be maintained

Two-way traffic will be maintained on Victoria Road South between Stone Road East and Macalister Boulevard; however, short-term lane reductions may be necessary. During these times, cyclists will merge with traffic on Victoria Road South as necessary.

Pedestrian access

The sidewalk on the west side of Victoria Road South will remain open; however, pedestrians may have to detour around equipment. The Contractor will clearly mark the detour.

Property and business access and parking

All businesses in the construction area remain open and accessible throughout construction.

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

City services

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