Concession Street Transformation is underway!!
Yes, the rumours are true. Phase 1 of the reconstruction and transformation of Concession Street - from Upper Wellington to Upper Sherman - began March 1st, 2015.
PHASE 2 BEGINS MAY 25th and runs to SEPTEMBER. During this time there will be Full Closure of Concession Street from Upper Wellington to Upper Wentworth (local access only). See more information HERE.
The project involves water main upgrades and full road reconstruction including new curbs.
Note that ALL SIDEWALKS WILL BE OPEN for virtually the entire build. Only small sections will be closed for short periods of time and we will update you on this as it happens.
Information will be posted here and on our News Page in the weeks and months to come. Please keep checking back for more details. See the latest NEWS FLASH re night work Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20.
In the meantime, Concession Street will continue to be "OPEN for Business" through the entire construction process, so come down and see the transformation unfold over the months to come.
"The construction crews on Concession are doing a great job looking out for pedestrians and drivers who need help maneuvering around the street. They are waving us by, using eye contact and directing vehicles for the safety of pedistrians. Including helping an elderly person around a sidewalk. The shop owners are interested in hearing how our getting around is going. I feel everyone is putting a positive light on our neighborhood in its time of change. Thanks again. N.P."
The Concession Street BIA is one of the largest in Hamilton, stretching from Upper Wellington Street to Upper Gage Street.
