Elmira Road to 500 metres west of Elmira Road
About the project
The City is reconstructing Paisley Road from Elmira Road to approximately 500m west of Elmira Road. The existing two lane road with gravel shoulders will be reconstructed to include new sidewalks on both sides of Paisley Road, a left turn lane onto Whitelaw Road and new bicycle lanes, as well as sanitary, water, and storm servicing.
The new bike lanes are part of the Cycling Master Plan, a 10-year strategy to make cycling easier, safer and more accessible in Guelph by building a connected network of on– and off–road bike facilities throughout Guelph. It is part of the City of Guelph’s efforts to support sustainable transportation, relieve traffic congestion, and make mobility accessible to all road users. Adding bike lanes to Paisley Road will also help to make it a street that accommodates all road users, including public transit, cycling, pedestrians and vehicles.
Construction starts in September
Reconstruction is expected to be completed over a four month period. Construction will begin in September 2015 and is expected to be complete by the end of November. This section of Paisley Road will be closed to traffic during construction. Traffic will be detoured to Speedvale Avenue and County Road 32. Access to the properties along Paisley Road, as well as the intersection at Whitelaw and Paisley Road will be closed for the duration of the project.236 kBNotice of open house: Paisley Road reconstruction, June 24
