MTO says design plans are underway to upgrade Highway 6 in Guelph

Last Updated Jul 15, 2017 at 4:32 pm EDT

Highway 6 in Guelph is getting a major facelift.

Traffic volumes on Highway 6 range from approximately 25,000 to 45,000 vehicles per day.

Now the province is working to increase safety, improve traffic flow and reduce congestion on the much used highway.

The Ministry of Transportation has started the next phase of design work to upgrade the Hanlon Expressway to a full freeway from Maltby Road northerly to the Speed River.

This project builds on the construction of the future Highway 6 Morriston Bypass, Highway 401 widening and improvements to the south end of the Hanlon Expressway.

The phase of design is anticipated to take two years to complete. The reason ” there is a lot of structural design work that has to be done, foundation design work that has to be done, identifying utility locations and where to relocate them, as well as the environmental work that has to be done,” said Roger Ward, Area Manager highway engineering, for West Region Ministry of Transportation.

Once the project is completed ” it will greatly reduce commute times and levels of congestion along the Hanlon,” said Ward.

 
The plan includes:

The construction of new interchanges at Kortright Road/Downey Road and at Stone Road like the one completed at Laird Road in 2013

Replacing the intersection at College Avenue with a bridge at Highway 6

A new municipal service road west of Highway 6 between Woodland Glen Drive and the new interchange at Stone Road.

More details about the construction will be released in local newspapers sometime this summer.
