Another mountain access will be partially closed beginning next week.
The City of Hamilton has announced that the westbound ramp between the Claremont Access and West 5th Street will be closed beginning October 14th as part of ongoing construction work on West 5th Street between Fennell Avenue and Gateview Drive.
All westbound traffic travelling from the Claremont Access will need to use an alternate route during this time. Those needing to access West 5th Street can either take the James Mountain Road access, which can be accessed from the end of James Street South in the downtown. Aternatively, those taking the Claremont Access can turn right at Brucedale Avenue West to get to West 5th.
The ramp is expected to remain closed until the end of November.
