Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

As we informed you back in June, Queen Street was to be converted from one-way traffic to two-way traffic. This change is in accordance with the City’s Vision Zero campaign. Work started on June 8, and originally was scheduled to last until November.

Queen Street two-way conversion construction to start June 8

The work so far has included:

  • Replacements of sidewalk corners and curbs
  • New traffic signal poles and lights
  • New audible pedestrian push buttons
  • Enhanced bike lane safety features including new cycle paths, concrete separation curbs, bike lane knockdown sticks and bicycle traffic signal lights
  • Traffic signal changes to include southbound movement

According to the City of Hamilton’s media release, the two-way conversion of Queen St S between Main St W and King St W will be completed in 2021, pending the finalization of localized development construction.

Crews will continue working in the area over the next few weeks to complete final touches, but the road will be open for travel.

The construction of a new traffic signal at Queen St N and Napier St will begin on Monday, September 14, 2020 and be completed in October.

The City wishes to thank all motorists, cyclists and pedestrians for their patience and cooperation as we complete these important infrastructure upgrades.
