City continuing repairs after further freeze-thaw cycles cause damage to roads

HAMILTON, ON – Due to recent temperature fluctuations and freeze-thaw cycles, many streets in Hamilton have sustained significant pavement damage and potholes.

Roads crews in Hamilton are responding with “all hands on deck” as we attempt to repair damage to the road in several priority areas across the city.

The City of Hamilton is providing the following winter driving tips for motorists navigating roads with potholes or other damage:

  • Reduce speed and follow other vehicles at a safe distance so you can clearly see the pavement ahead
  • Pay close attention to road conditions, other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists
  • Ensure your vehicle is thoroughly clear of snow, ice and mud
  • Properly maintain your vehicle, particularly tires, headlights and windshield wipers

Residents and motorists are asked to report potholes by contacting the City’s Customer Service Contact Centre during regular business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at 905-546-CITY (2489). When reporting potholes, residents are asked to provide detailed information such as location (street addresses or intersections) and estimated size of the pothole.
