Scottsdale Drive Bike Lanes

About the project

The City of Guelph is working to design and construct bike lanes on Scottsdale Drive from College Avenue to Kortright Road.

This project supports the planning and policies in the City’s Cycling Master PlanTransportation Master Plan, and Official Plan. The aim is to encourage and support healthy, safe, and convenient modes of transportation within our community.

The new bike lanes on Scottsdale Drive are an important link in Guelph’s growing cycling network. They form a North-South connection for people in South Guelph neighbourhoods. The lanes will allow people to bike or scoot between home, school, parks, and shops. The map below shows the full length of the Scottsdale bike lanes and how they will connect with existing and future cycling routes in the area.

The new bike lanes will be 2 to 2.5 meters wide. They will have a painted buffer strip to create space between people in the bike lane and passing vehicles. In some places, the buffer strip will also have curbs and bollards. They will give more protection for people using the bike lanes.

The project will change vehicle lanes. It will also remove on-street parking. This is to make room for the new cycling facilities.
