Paisley feeder main: Silvercreek Parkway to Paisley Road

About the project

The City of Guelph is constructing the Paisley Feedermain from Silvercreek Parkway to Paisley Road. Work includes the installation of the watermain, site preparation, removals, road work, storm sewers and landscaping.

The Paisley Feedermain is needed to allow for future growth within Guelph. This phase of the project is approximately 1192 metres and includes construction of a 400 milimetre diameter concrete pressure pipe watermain. While open cut construction will be used for the majority of the work, the portion that extends under the Hanlon Expressway (Highway 6) will be microtunnelled.

Latest updates


Construction starts in April, 2019

Construction is expected to start in early April 2019 and be completed by January 2020.

Paisley Road will undergo lane reductions during the project. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times.

Residents on Sullivan Crescent (with properties backing onto Paisley Road and/or the northwest drain) will be impacted by installation of watermain, within a City easement, which crosses backyards.

All construction notices, including timing updates and traffic changes will be posted at and in the latest updates section.

Public meetings

The City hosts open houses to provide detailed project information to interested stakeholders. Open house notices are posted in the latest updates section. Open house materials will be available online following the event.
