Claremont Access & Keddy Trail Update

This article, from October 6, provides a sneak peek at the progress on the Claremont Access/Keddy Trail.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

Since July 6th, the southbound (upbound) lanes of the Claremont Access have been closed to traffic, as City of Hamilton crews work on the first multi-modal connection between the lower city and Hamilton Mountain, including a long-awaited multi-use trail.

The Ward 8 office has received some pictures of the progress so far, which we are happy to share with residents.

For more details, please continue reading below…

The nearly $6 million project, which includes road resurfacing of the southbound lanes, will see the introduction of a trail running from Hunter Street up the Mountain where it will veer to the west along the West 5th ramp, ultimately ending at Mohawk College. The Keddy Trail will be separated from vehicle traffic by a concrete barrier.

The Ward 8 Office has previously provided updates on the entirety of the Claremont Access project, which you can find below:

Progress on the project seems to be entering the final stages, with the majority of the access already resurfaced, and concrete barriers along the trail already in place.

Work on the trail is starting to take shape as well, with barriers and pathways near completion.

As mentioned, work is scheduled to last until November. The Ward 8 office will provide updates on re-opening once that information is readily available.
