A series of neighbourhood upgrade construction projects in downtown Hamilton is scheduled to start next and for their duration, motorists and residents in the areas should expect some disruption.

Starting Tuesday (May 25), the City of Hamilton will begin construction as part of the Central Neighbourhood upgrades project in the downtown core.

“The project will continue throughout the summer and fall months and reach substantial completion in December 2021,” the City said in a press release issued Tuesday (May 18).

A brief summary of upgrades include:

  • Watermain and sewer replacement
  • Road and sidewalk reconstruction
  • Road resurfacing
  • Intersection improvements

The intersection at Mulberry Street and MacNab Street N will be closed beginning on or about Tuesday, May 25 for approximately six weeks and, weather permitting, work there is expected to wrap up on or before July 6.

“Local access on Mulberry St and MacNab St N will be maintained, but there will be no through access at the intersection,” the release said.

Once the work at Mulberry and MacNab wraps up, the following closures will take place over the summer and fall months:

  • James St N between Barton St and Cannon St
  • Bay St N between Barton St and Cannon St
  • Barton St N between Bay St N and James St N

There will be limited on-street parking availability during construction, the City said.

“Businesses in the area will remain open throughout the duration of the construction,” the release said.

“Residents and businesses impacted by noise, dust or changes in water services will be notified in advance.
