Notice of Commencement: Guelph Protected Cycling Network Study

Many residents of our city want to feel more comfortable and secure when cycling in Guelph. The City of Guelph is developing plans for a protected cycling network that will connect large parts of our community. The design solutions will help riders of any age or ability feel comfortable biking along key streets in the city.

Our goal is to provide attractive, affordable and reasonable transportation options for everyone. This study will develop conceptual designs for 13 kilometres of all ages and abilities protected cycling infrastructure along three corridors:

  • Eramosa Road between Woolwich Street to Victoria Road (Study Area A)
  • Gordon Street between Waterloo Avenue to Clair Road (Study Area B)
  • College Avenue between Janefield Avenue to Dundas Lane (Study Area C)

Funding for this project is provided by the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) grant.
