Highway 7 - Kitchener to Guelph
Does anyone know if that's coupled with using the new extension?

As of 8:00pm I can confirm that the lights are not yet activated nor is the extension open. It looks like it would be ready to open any day however.

I can report that the Shirley extension is open as of this evening. Still just two lanes, of course, but what an improvement!

I wish the left turn advance from Wellington to Riverbend was a little longer. That has been my regular morning route and it seems like it take 2-3 lights to get through this week. Maybe it is a perception thing that when it was a 3-way stop you are always crawling along. I understand the whole area is still a work in progress.

I'll be interested to see how it effects traffic 'downstream'.  

I didn't drive the route that often at 'rush hour' but there were times when coming west on Bingemans/Shirley that you'd have traffic backed up for 10-15 minutes.  Should move a lot faster now, but I'm wondering if the lineup at Bridgeport/Lancaster will now get longer.

Looks good though.  It'll be really interesting to see how this area changes over the next 3-4 years.

Edit: Already kind of interesting to see how its changed over the last year: https://www.google.ca/maps/@43.4676732,-...312!8i6656

Victoria St traffic should be improved as people moved more efficiently between Guelph and Expressway
