The Guelph community has expressed a desire to include an underpass at the Speedvale Bridge and a trail extension that would connect the Trans Canada Trail to Riverside Park on the west side of the Speed River.
On November 27, 2017, Council gave staff the direction to report back to Council in 2018 on alternative trail design options within the identified study area on the west side of the river. Alternative trail design options would have no minimum design criteria and would need to comply with the Official Plan, Zoning By-law and any provincial legislation.
On September 13, staff held an open house to share the outcome of their work and present a design concept to the community.
The information presented included a recommended trail alignment of the north and south trail sections, the underpass and a potential interim solution. Attendees were invited to provide their feedback.
