Motorists are advised to avoid the area near Mountain Park Avenue in Hamilton today and tomorrow.

Mountain Park Avenue is closed from Upper Wentworth Street to Poplar Avenue on Monday, Aug. 28 and Tuesday, Aug. 29 daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. for asphalt resurfacing. The City of Hamilton said motorists should take an alternate route.

The City has been doing road reconstruction work and trail enhancements along Mountain Park Avenue since March. The work is expected to wrap up by October.

The reconstruction and trail work includes widening the pedestrian pathway and extra bike lane features, planting trees, road resurfacing with minor watermain works, reconfiguring parking lots to accommodate extra parking space, installing black ornamental fencing (east of Poplar Avenue) and street furniture, which includes bike racks, benches, waste receptacles and more.

In addition, the City announced other road work:

  • Motorists face lane restrictions for about six weeks on Garner Road East between Anson Drive and Miller Drive in Ancaster. Crews will be doing lane widening work. The City of Hamilton said motorists may experience delays.
  • Both Westover Road lanes between Sodom Road and Highway 8 are closed for about four months in order to “safely complete bridge maintenance,” according to the City. The lanes are expected to reopen in December. The scope of work includes roadway milling and paving. Motorists are advised to detour around the closure using Highway 8, Highway 5, Brock Road and Concession Road 5.

“The City of Hamilton thanks motorists, pedestrians and cyclists for their patience as we complete these important infrastructure repairs,” it wrote in a press release.
