Watermain breaks on major Hamilton streets slow traffic

Published August 3, 2022 at 10:27 am

Road users in two busy areas of Hamilton have had to dip into their wells of patience today due to watermain breaks.

Both have required lane restrictions in order for Hamilton Water crews to perform repair work.

The City of Hamilton says a watermain broke near 1186 Stone Church Rd. E., on Hamilton Mountain, around 2 p.m. on Wednesday (Aug. 3). The lane restrictions are in place on Stone Church from Upper Ottawa St. to Nebo Rd. and are expected to last until around 9 p.m. tonight.

Earlier, a watermain broke in the intersection of King St. W. and Paradise Rd. S., just west of the interchanges with Highway 403.

That repair job was initially expected to be completed by 3 p.m. today.
