About the project

The City of Guelph is supporting the Guelph Hiking Trail Club (GHTC) with an initiative to build the Crane Park Bridge as the Club’s 50th anniversary legacy project. The 25-foot bridge will cross over a storm water outlet and will provide safe year-round access to the land on both sides of the storm water channel. The project is funded by private donors, the Club and the community.

The project consists of two phases. The first phase is a closure of the park for delivery of the new bridge. The second phase includes ramp construction for safe access to the bridge.

Work happening January 12

Phase one work is expected to start on or about Thursday, January 12 and will take about one day to complete, weather permitting.

Pedestrian access

The trail network will be closed for the day and there will be no pedestrian access to Crane Park until phase one work is complete.

City services

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.
