North Guelph highway closing for four weeks
Drivers in north Guelph may need to rethink their routes for the next few weeks.
Scheduled to begin Monday, April 25, Woolwich Street between Woodlawn Road and Speedvale Avenue will be closed to all but local traffic. Weather permitting, work is expected to take four weeks.
During this time, crews will be installing sewer and water pipes for two development projects on Woolwich — a youth mental health hub at the former McDonald’s and work on the Beer Store property. The road will be repaired afterwards.
With only local traffic being permitted, vehicles will be directed along Speedvale, Woodlawn and Edinburgh Road North.
For pedestrians, the west sidewalk in front of 710 Woolwich will be closed for two weeks starting April 25, and the east sidewalk will be closed for two weeks starting May 2.
This work will also see Guelph Transit Route 99 detoured. Bus riders are advised to go to guelphtransit.ca for information on stop changes and route detours.
Any updates on this project will be posted online at guelph.ca/construction.
