Stretch of Rymal Road to host Environmental Assessment

This post, from March 5, has information on the second public information centre for the Environmental Assessment for Rymal Road.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

The City of Hamilton has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process to develop and assess solutions to improve traffic along Rymal Road, stretching from Dartnall Road to Upper James Street in Ward 8.

For more details, please continue reading below…

The Environmental Assessment will assess options to improve traffic, pedestrian and cyclist access, and stormwater management throughout the corridor.

The study will focus on:

  • multi-modal safety (pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles)
  • capacity
  • traffic management and consistency with neighbouring road segments on Rymal Road
  • stormwater management
  • complete streets
  • servicing improvements

Public consultation is key to the success of any City study, and residents of Ward 8 who live along Rymal, as well as those who use it on a regular basis, would be excellent candidates to help the City learn what is most important for those directly impacted by this study.

The first Public Information Centre, held virtually, will take place on September 19th from 6-8 PM. Registration is required.
