Ontario announces upgrades to Highway 6 in Guelph

Posted on July 17, 2017

The Ministry of Transportation has started the next phase of design work to upgrade the Hanlon Expressway (Highway 6) to a full freeway from Maltby Road northerly to the Speed River.

The project will improve commute times to help people get home to their families faster and keep goods moving efficiently. Traffic volumes on Highway 6 in Guelph range from approximately 25,000 to 45,000 vehicles per day.

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

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. Engineering and environmental work is continuing on this important project. The $13 million design contract for both projects was awarded to AECOM.

    It would on one hand be better to invest in roundabouts. Additionally, the money and effort should go to the Morriston bypass first.

    Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for your comments and thoughts! We’re quite familiar with Highway 6 here in the office, and we’d love to see more roundabouts connected to that infrastructure space. The Morriston bypass is another important project.

    Glad you’re engaged. Make sure to let your MPP know your thoughts.

    Best,
    RC team
