Building and navigating our future – construction and infrastructure improvement projects

The City is responsible for building, maintaining and improving sidewalks, roads, bike lanes, multi-use paths and underground utilities like watermains and sewers. This work is important as we prepare to be future ready and meet the demands of Guelph’s growing population now and for decades to come. We know construction causes disruptions and we appreciate your ongoing patience, understanding and co-operation.
