Speedvale Ave & Woolwich St Re-opened to Traffic

Minor Improvements to Continue in Spring 2024

About the Project

The reconstruction of the Speedvale Avenue and Woolwich Street intersection is a phase of work connected to the Speedvale Avenue East reconstruction and bridge replacement. The intersection recently reopened to traffic following improvements to the underground utilities including sanitary sewers, water mains, storm sewers and electrical.

Caught in Guelph (and Area) member Donna Schnurr McGarr first reported the opening on Wednesday December 6th to big community fanfare and excitement. The thread had since reached 74,100+ people, over 600 reacts and almost 200 comments.


Temporary Re-opening

Additional construction work will take place in the spring to complete in-boulevard cycling facilities and relocate several utility poles that have been placed in temporary locations at the intersection.

Pedestrian and Cyclist Access

The sidewalks at the intersection will be open throughout the winter. People walking in the area can expect that the temporary utility poles may pose obstacles on the sidewalk during this time.

Temporary pavement markings and signs will direct people cycling in the area to use the road. The planned multi-use paths and cycle tracks will also be completed in spring 2024 when construction resumes.


Drivers on Woolwich Street should expect to sometimes share the lane with people biking in the vicinity of the intersection. The intersection and lanes are fully opened for drivers and busses.
