Discovery Drive Hamilton construction: HSR detour, starting March 30



Update — Tuesday, January 12, 2021, 4:56 p.m.: Wednesday, **January 13, 2021 only, the City is closing John Street North at Burlington Street East for more construction. The HSR is further detouring the buses that day.


Update — Tuesday, September 1, 1:54 p.m.: The last day this year for seasonal service along the 99 Waterfront shuttle route is Labour Day, Monday, September 7.


*Update — Friday, June 26, 5:18 p.m.: Starting Sunday, June 28, the HSR resumes service along the 99 Waterfront shuttle route. Since those buses usually also operate along Discovery Drive, the buses likely follow a similar detour path. However, the HSR has not confirmed a detour.


Update — Thursday, May 7, 4:51 p.m.: Construction on Discovery Drive and the resulting HSR detour continue until further notice.


Starting Monday, March 30, a project to rebuild Discovery Drive blocks the street to traffic.

(We’re not sure whether the City of Hamilton or the Hamilton Waterfront Trust are responsible for this project — which is why we’re not posting more details. Neither organization includes information about the project on their websites.)

The Hamilton Street Railway is detouring buses along this route, while the street is closed:

  • 20 A-Line express.
