The City of Hamilton will be converting Wentworth Street to two-way on Sunday, October 23, 2016.
Wentworth Street will change to two-way between Barton Street E and Delaware Avenue, thereby making it two-way for its entire length.
Crews will begin making adjustments to the pavement markings and signage between Delaware Avenue and Barton Street E starting tomorrow. Wentworth will remain one-way southbound through this week, and will officially open to two-way traffic on Sunday.
To accommodate the two-way traffic, there will be no parking on the east side of Wentworth Street between Barton and Main Street as of Sunday, October 23, 2016.
As part of the City of Hamilton’s Transportation Master Plan, Council approved the conversion of eight roadways from one-way to two-way in May 2014. The conversion of Wentworth Street was approved by Council in November 2015.
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to exercise caution while proceeding through this area over the coming months.
