A section of the westbound side of Front Street will close on Monday for resurfacing work.

The stretch between No. 8 Gate and Court Street will be shut until Friday.

A City of Hamilton spokeswoman said the eastbound lane will be closed to traffic from 7am to 9.30am to let rush hour traffic to travel west into the city.

She added: “Eastbound traffic during this time will be encouraged to detour up Parliament Street with absolute diversion at Court Street.”

After 9:30am, west bound traffic will be diverted up Spurling Hill where it can access Front Street again at Court Street.

Eastbound traffic on Front Street will resume as normal at 9:30am. Motorists should drive with caution while the work is carried out.

On-street parking on Front Street between No. 8 Gate and Court Street will be restricted in blocks as the work is carried out along this stretch.

This includes No. 8 car park when the entrance is asphalted.

Parts of Front Street have already been shut off while asphalt is replaced.

The work is required to prepare the route for the upcoming ITU Triathlon competition.
