City patching stretches of Church Street this week
City of Hamilton workers are patching stretches of the surface of Church Street this week, using a “moveable closure“ aimed at reducing disruption for motorists.
A spokeswoman said crews are working to fill all potholes along the street to ensure a safer and smoother driving experience for motorists.
She said on Friday: “A ‘moveable closure’ helps to ensure the least disruption to road users, area businesses and their customers.
“A one-lane closure is currently in place in front of People’s Pharmacy (Church Street) and crews will work their way eastwards down Church Street towards King Street.”
She said road crews will try to open both lanes from 4.30pm to 6pm each day during the work week.
“Towards the end of next week, road crews will start patching works in the Burnaby Street/Cedar Avenue/Church Street junction and outside of the MarketPlace and the Cathedral on Church Street,” she said, adding all Church Street works should be completed by the end of next week.
The spokeswoman also said work on the sidewalk on Victoria Street outside the Ex-Artillerymen’s Association started on Tuesday and is scheduled to take five weeks. No driving lanes have been closed in this area so there is no disruption to traffic flow.
