Detours, delays on Dundas’ Osler Drive at University Plaza

News Apr 17, 2015 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

A major road construction project begins in Dundas on Monday, including the area of Osler Drive and Grant Boulevard, creating traffic detours and possible transit delays at the entrance to University Plaza.

The $2.2-million project includes new watermains, sanitary and storm sewers, sidewalks and roads  at Dunning Court, Colmar Place, Osler Court, Don Street and Grant at Osler.

Dundas city councilor Arlene VanderBeek said a meeting with area residents had been set for last Thursday night.

“This is a huge project,” VanderBeek said. “There were some concerns from neighbours about access.”

According to a City of Hamilton press release issued Friday morning, sewer connections will be taking place in front of University Plaza beginning Monday, April 20 as part of the ongoing construction work.

“Lane closures will be required to facilitate this work so traffic will be detoured around the area,” the release states. “Access to University Plaza will be maintained but motorists should expect delays in the area. HSR transit may also experience delays. The work is expected to be completed within two weeks.”

The four University Gardens neighbourhood roads identified as one of 38 Hamilton infrastructure rehab priorities seven years ago, but preliminary review discovered a more significant project should move forward and include underground sewer and watermain work as well as sidewalks.
