Waverley Street serves as a major route to get to and from the industrial and commercial areas between McGillivray and Bishop Grandin Boulevards. The speed limit along the route south of Wilkes Avenue is 80 km/h (50 mph). Near Taylor Avenue, Waverley crosses the city's main Canadian National Railway line, where passing trains frequently cause major traffic delays. The city is planning to construct an underpass to alleviate the problem in the near future.
Not all of Waverley Street is incorporated into Route 80. North of Grant Avenue, Waverley Street is a one-way residential street running southbound through the River Heights neighbourhood, starting at Wellington Crescent. South of the Perimeter Highway, Waverley Street is as an unnumbered local road that runs south to Provincial Road 247. Prior to the extension of Route 90 to the Perimeter Highway, this section connected to Route 80 at the Perimeter Highway.
