Description:
The Hanlon Parkway is a high-capacity at-grade suburban expressway in the city of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, which connects it with Highway 401. 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 7 and 24), all junctions are signalized at-grade intersections. There are also two railway crossings near the northern terminus, though both are for spur lines. The Hanlon is graded and landscaped similarly to a freeway, with broad flat shoulders and an open median.

The 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 designation.

The road is named after nearby Hanlon Creek.
