To safely complete repairs to the shoulder caused by significant rainfall, the City of Hamilton will also close all lanes on the west leg of the Sherman access on Sunday.

The closure will take affect from 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Once repairs are complete, the west leg of the Sherman Access will return to its current set up using a temporary traffic signal to accommodate only one lane of traffic for a 250-metre stretch, west of the Wentworth Stairs.

The east leg of the Sherman Access will remain open.
