Notice date: September 6, 2018

About the project

The City is working with our contractor to install a water chamber at the Emma Street well located at 93 Emma Street.

Work is being completed by Drexler Construction.

Construction begins September 17

Construction is scheduled to begin on or about Monday, September 17 and be complete in approximately four weeks, weather permitting.

Section of Emma Street to close on September 19

“No Parking” signs will be erected in the construction area to allow access for contractor vehicles.

A short-term road closure is scheduled for Wednesday, September 19 for the delivery of the water chamber. It is estimated the road closure will last a few hours. Access to local properties on Emma Street will be maintained as much as possible during the closure.

No thru traffic will be permitted along Emma Street between 89 and 95 Emma Street during the short-term road closure. The detour route is along Pleasant Road and Metcalfe Street.

Pedestrian access

The south sidewalk along Emma Street from 89 to 95 Emma Street will be closed for the duration of the project.

Property and business access and parking

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during working hours (Monday to Friday 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 impacts

Guelph Transit route 12 will be temporarily detoured around the area during construction. Visit for information about stop changes and route detours.

City services

It is anticipated that 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.
