Several road closures will be impacting traffic in Hamilton this week


There are several road closures coming into effect on Monday (June 29) that motorists, pedestrians and cyclists should be aware of in order to plan how they'll be getting around.

Phase 2 of the City of Hamilton's Highway 8 reconstruction project in Dundas gets underway Monday and will see the closure of the road from Woodleys Lane to Park Avenue until November, weather permitting.

Local access between Hillcrest Ave and Park Ave will be maintained.

As part of the improvement project, Hwy 8 will receive the following upgrades:

  • Road reconstruction
  • Sewer replacements
  • Wider sidewalks and curbs
  • Paved shoulder
  • 4-way stop signs

The other closure that will affect traffic in Hamilton is on Winona Road between Victoria Avenue and Barton Street.

This closure will be in effect for just four days next week, starting Monday at 7 a.m., weather permitting.

CN is completing train track improvements along this corridor and construction is expected to be wrapped up by Thursday (July 2) at 8 p.m.

CN will also complete work on nearby roads in Stoney Creek resulting in four-day closures at each location. Dates for the work are weather permitting, however, at this time, road closure dates are scheduled for:

  • Millen Rd between Seaman St and Arvin Ave: July 6 at 7 a.m. until July 9 at 8 p.m.
  • Grays Rd between Burford Rd and Milburn Rd: July 13 at 7 a.m. until July 16 at 8 p.m.
  • Victoria Ave N between Barton St E and Shaw St: July 20 at 7 a.m. until July 23 at 8 p.m.

The entire project is expected to wrap up on Thursday, July 23 at 8 p.m.

HSR customers travelling on Route #12 Wentworth should be aware of bus route detours in effect from July 20 until July 23. All details can be found here: HSR Impacts
