Open house notice: Join us to discuss phase two of the Woodlawn Road multi-use path on August 2

Silvercreek Parkway to Imperial Road

The City of Guelph is hosting an open house to present construction plans for the multi-use path on Woodlawn Road West from Silvercreek Parkway to Imperial Road.

The multi-use path will be built on Woodlawn Road’s north and south sides between the existing curb and property line. The multi-use path will be three metres wide for use by pedestrians, cyclists and other users to get around. The multi-use path is funded by the Province under its Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program to build safer, more connected cycling routes for Ontarians and to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. The City of Guelph is contributing at least 20 per cent toward the total eligible project cost.

Construction will include the replacement of the underground sanitary sewer, storm sewer and water main pipes from Regal Road to Silvercreek Parkway. The Hanlon Expressway (Highway 6) will be closed to all traffic between Speedvale Avenue and Woodlawn Road for a period of three months. The detour for traffic is via Speedvale Avenue, Silvercreek Parkway and Woodlawn Road. One lane will be maintained in each direction on Woodlawn Road from Silvercreek Parkway to Regal Road throughout construction. Woodlawn Road at Imperial Road will be closed for one month.  Delays should be expected.
