New bike crossings coming to Guelph intersections

Starting in July, the City of Guelph will be installing crossrides and bicycle crossing signals at some intersections.

  • The City of Guelph says crossrides, like the one shown here, are designed so those on bicycles can stay mounted while crossing intersections.

Guelph cyclists will soon be able to cross the road more safely when out on their bikes this summer.

In a June 30 news release, the City of Guelph announced that crossrides — a separate lane designed for cyclists that allows them to stay on their bikes while crossing intersections — and bike signals are being installed around the city, starting in July.

“Crossrides and bike signals ensure that all road users can move around freely and have access to safely cross intersections and share road space,” the release notes.

The first crossride will be installed at Vanier Drive and College Avenue in July, followed by two more — one at Stone Road and Gordon Street, the other at Woodlawn and Arrow roads — in August.
