In anticipation of the construction, utility work needs to be completed.  Alectra, Union Gas, Bell Canada and the City of Hamilton has scheduled work starting in 2018.  As dates and information about the work becomes available, we will post it below.

Throughout the work, residents can expect some loud noise and disruption to traffic.  The work crews are doing their best to limit impact to both traffic and pedestrians. Anyone driving in the area is being asked to reduce driving speeds to help ensure the safety of workers.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.
