Upbound lanes of Claremont Access closed until November

The upbound lanes of Hamilton’s Claremont Access are now closed until November.

It is part of a project to build a new multi-trail network.

The upbound lanes will be resurfaced between Main St. and Inverness Ave., along with the ramp to West 5th St. along the Mountain Brow.

The new trail will run along the same corridor, between Hunter St. and West 5th St.

There will be side trail connections at four locations.

The city will be reducing upbound traffic to two lanes to make room for the trail.

The West 5th St. ramp will be reduced to one lane.

The trail will be known as the Keddy Access Trail, named after a popular Hamilton teacher who was killed cycling up the Claremont Access in December 2015.
