Area of construction on the Norwich Street Bridge

The bridge Norwich Street Bridge crosses over the Speed River between Cardigan Street and Arthur Street North. The bridge is currently closed to vehicle traffic and serves as a pedestrian crossing.

The City of Guelph completed a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study for proposed improvements to the deteriorating Norwich Street Bridge in 2017. The EA study determined the bridge will be maintained as a heritage structure with repairs to make it safe for future use.
