Lane restrictions on this Hamilton road will affect traffic for weeks
The City of Hamilton announced Monday (Feb. 24) that a portion of the Hwy 8 Hill in Dundas will be closed for three weeks.
To safely complete geotechnical investigations, the city says, the Hwy 8 Hill will be reduced to one lane between Bond Street South and Woodley’s Lane beginning Monday, March 2 for approximately 3 weeks.
Work is expected to include borehole drilling, slope stability investigations, sampling and testing of the soil.
This work, a city press release says, is part of the Hwy 8 Hill upcoming capital reconstruction project, which includes the bridge replacement over Spencer Creek.
The project is expected to wrap up on or before March 18, weather permitting.
Access to the Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will be maintained.
Vehicles will be flagged through the area during this time. The city warns motorists that they may experience delays.
