Traffic Management

South end construction, closures and detours

Press release.

Construction projects along Gordon Street in Guelph’s south end will start today as the City continues improving infrastructure and road conditions.

Gordon Street between Edinburgh Road South and Arkell Road has been reduced to one lane in each direction. The City expects to finish installing underground water, wastewater and utility services for the condominium development at 1291 Gordon Street by August 22, weather permitting.

Clair Road between Gordon Street and Gosling Gardens, at the Birds Landing subdivision, will be completely closed to all traffic starting August 25 as the City works on the sanitary sewer and watermain and installs traffic signals. Construction at this site is expected to be completed by August 29, weather permitting. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes.

Starting September 2, construction will continue at the Birds Landing subdivision on Gordon Street between Clair Road East and Poppy Drive. Northbound and southbound traffic will be maintained with one lane in each direction while the watermain extension and connection and traffic signal updates are completed. Construction at this location is expected to be completed by September 5, weather permitting.

“Bike lanes will be closed but sidewalks will be open so people will have access to a safe crossing,” explained Grant Ferguson, project manager, Engineering Services. “We understand how difficult it can be to get around and through construction zones, and we appreciate everyone’s patience while these projects are completed.”

The City of Guelph appreciates residents’ patience, understanding and co-operation during this important work, and will post updates on, Twitter and Facebook.
