All work will be in the City right-of-way.

Construction is expected to start on or about October 13 and continue for approximately three weeks, weather permitting.

Traffic Restrictions
There will be turning restrictions, through-road closures and lane reductions as follows:

October 13–16
• Edinburgh Road South closed to westbound traffic at Gordon Street
• No westbound turns onto Edinburgh Road South from Gordon Street
• North and southbound turns from Edinburgh Road South onto Gordon Street will be maintained via one eastbound lane

Anyone travelling through the work zone should expect delays. Signal timing at the Gordon Street/Kortright Road intersection will be adjusted to help facilitate travel along detour routes.

Pedestrians will be directed by information signs and detours as required.

Please see map for more details and follow all posted detours.

Guelph Transit
Transit route 1A will be detoured during construction. Please visit for detailed information.

Property Access and Parking
Every effort will be made to maintain access to businesses and driveways throughout construction during normal business hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact some access to private property and delays should be expected. All business and driveway access will be restored by the end of each working day.

City Services
There will be no interruptions of any City services throughout the construction period. Waste collection will not be impacted by the construction. Please continue to place your green, blue and grey carts at the curb as per your regular schedule.
