Hanlon Parkway is a high-capacity at-grade
suburban expressway in the city of
Guelph, Ontario, Canada, which
connects it with Highway
It runs in a general north-south direction in the
city's west end. It is signed as Highway 6
for its whole length; from
Wellington Street to Woodlawn Road, it is multiplexed with Highway 7
. It is 17 km (10.5 miles)
long. The speed limit alternates between 70 and 80 km/h (45
and 50 mph), although the flow is generally faster especially in
the more rural sections.
Though the road was originally designed as a freeway
, budget limitations precluded the
construction of overpasses
; apart from the
interchanges with the 401 and with Wellington Street West (Highways
), all junctions are signalized at-grade intersections
. There are also
two railway crossings
northern terminus, though both are for spur
lines. The Hanlon is graded and
landscaped similarly to a freeway, with broad flat shoulders and an
Government of Ontario has
plans to build a new Highway 7 freeway bypass joining the current
northern terminus of the Hanlon Parkway to the Conestoga Parkway in Kitchener; if the project goes ahead, it is likely that the
Hanlon will be upgraded to a freeway for its full length and given
a 400-series highway
The road is named after nearby Hanlon
