City Update on College Ave Project

July 08, 2009 - Campus Bulletin

The City of Guelph has updated the University regarding ongoing infrastructure improvements along College Avenue. There will be new openings and closures starting Monday, July 13, that will affect access.

Powerhouse Lane and parking lot P19 (located west of the Cutten Club) will be open and accessible to local traffic.

The intersection at College Avenue and East Ring Road will be closed, along with the entrances to the Cutten Club’s parking lot. The Cutten Club may be accessed via Gordon Street and College Avenue through P19. To access facilities off East Ring Road, including the Child Care Centre, Alumni House and the W.F. Mitchell Athletics Centre, you are advised to enter campus via a Stone Road entrance.

The City of Guelph plans to keep portions of College Avenue closed for much of the summer for reconstruction. Plans call for the installation of bike lanes, sanitary sewers, storm sewers, curbs, gutters and sidewalks from Powerhouse Lane to Dundas Lane. The project is scheduled to end by mid-August.

Guelph Transit routes that use College Avenue and East Ring Road continue to be affected. Specifically, bus 52 will run along Gordon Street to South Ring Road. Please refer to the Guelph Transit website for more information.
