The City of Hamilton just issued a news release announcing that MacNab Street North will be permanently converted to two-way between Cannon Street and Burlington Street on between June 3 and June 18.
MacNab Street North is currently two-way between York Boulevard and Cannon, where it switches to one-way northbound. York at MacNab was converted to two-way in December 2010, along with Park Street North between York and Cannon.
MacNab was identified for two-way conversion in the 2001 Downtown Transportation Master Plan, and the conversion was prioritized under the North End Traffic Management Study, which will also establish a 30 km/h speed limit on all North End streets except for James Street North and Burlington Street.
The conversion will entail a new traffic light on Cannon and new stop signs along MacNab. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to use extra caution after the conversion.
