Virtual public open house for the study of road-level railway crossings in Guelph

About the study

Metrolinx has been reviewing road-level railway crossings in Guelph. The City of Guelph also initiated a study of the transportation impacts on five road-level railway crossings along the Metrolinx corridor. While Metrolinx is indicating that they do not plan on closing any more crossings, we have continued with our study because we know that neighbourhood connectivity is important. We want to preserve connectivity and ensure it aligns with our transportation goals now and into the future.

The rail crossings identified in our study are:

  • Alma Street between Crimea and Inkerman streets
  • Edinburgh Road between Foster Avenue and Preston/Inkerman streets
  • Yorkshire Street between Foster Avenue and Preston Street
  • Glasgow Street at Kent Street
  • Watson Road just north of York Road

The study also looks at and evaluates options for an active transportation connection across the rail line at Cityview Drive, Margaret Greene Park, and Dublin Street.
