Speedvale Avenue West infrastructure improvements and new multi-use path - Elmira Road North to Imperial Road North

The City of Guelph is hosting a virtual open house to present plans for the Speedvale Avenue West infrastructure improvements project. This includes the construction of a new multi-use path and installation of underground water and sewer pipes on Speedvale Avenue West from Elmira Road North to Imperial Road North.

About the project

Speedvale Avenue West will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Elmira Road North to Imperial Road North. Some short-term road closures and controlled access to businesses can also be expected during the project.

Construction includes the installation of new storm sewer and water pipes, new multi-use path, curb and gutter and final repaving.

Construction is expected to begin in spring 2022 and be completed by fall 2022.

This is your opportunity to review the presentation, project information, construction plans, and to ask questions about the project including traffic impacts and property access. From Monday, October 25 to Friday, November 12, 2021 at 4 p.m., provide your comments and ask questions below. Our team members are also available by email or phone from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday if you prefer to contact us directly.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Great to see this project finally being started next year!
Looking at the width of the MUP I am hoping that consideration is given to making it wider- at least in some areas .I am also hoping it is designated bidirectional for cyclists. I use the MUP on Woodlawn road frequently and when you encounter a pedestrian it would be great if the MUP was wider for safe passing.
If space is limited perhaps a few areas could be widened for planned passing of pedestrians and other cyclists?
As other comment has noted a crossrides at Intersections and Pedestrian /bicycle crosswalk/crossride would be desirable midblock
Looking forward to further expansion and connectivity of this MUP
I also hope better signage is used on this MUP vs Woodlawn ,to educate and alert drivers at driveway entrances exits and intersections to the existence of this NEW MUP .
I also hope this MUP is Winter maintained if the goal is to increase biking and walking to work.

This is great news and long overdue. From 2008 to 2013, my office was located at 660 Speedvale Avenue West and when possible, I would bike or walk to work. It was dicey at the best of times and impossible for much of the winter - especially in the dark. I contacted the City way back then about the need to facilitate active transportation on this stretch. If the MUP had been in place then, my only concern would have been getting across the street in the middle of the block. If and when there is more development on the side of Speedvale that does not have a MUP, I would hope that another one would be constructed.
