College Avenue Evaluation Results

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

See the results of the evaluation of design options for College Avenue, including the preliminary preferred conceptual design, and provide comments or questions.


A hybrid approach has been identified as preferred for College Avenue, with Cycle Tracks from Janefield Road to Edinburgh Road, and Protected Bike Lanes from Edinburgh Road to Dundas Lane. This hybrid option optimizes cyclist comfort in the western portion of the corridor, where several elementary schools are located, while limiting construction complexity in the more constrained eastern portion of the corridor which includes the University of Guelph and numerous mature trees.
