Lane reductions and detours

York Road will be closed from Ontario Street to Brockville Avenue to all through traffic during the construction project. Only local access will be permitted. Traffic will be detoured along Wellington Street, Elizabeth Street and Victoria Road.

Pedestrian access

Portions of the sidewalk along York Road will need to be closed temporarily throughout construction. One sidewalk, either on the north or south side, will always remain open for pedestrians to move through the area. Pedestrians should follow signs and cross over York Road at designated crossings.

Impacts to Lyon pool, baseball diamonds and reactional trail access

Access to Lyon pool, baseball diamonds and recreational trail can be accessed via Waterworks Place. The Lyon pool parking lot remains open with additional parking located at the end of Waterworks Place.

Please see map of construction area for vehicular and pedestrian access routes to the Lyon pool parking lot.

Property and business access and parking

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

Ferra Flooring Carpet One Floor and Home and the Unitarian Congregation of Guelph located at the intersection of Harris Street and York Road both remain open during construction and will be accessible from Harris Street.

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