Temporary closure of Wentworth Stairs beginning Monday for lighting upgrades

HAMILTON, ON – In order to safely install new lighting along the Wentworth Stairs, the City of Hamilton will temporarily close both sides of the Wentworth Stairs beginning Monday, November 12 until Friday November 23 between the hours of 9:30 am and 4:30 pm.

The entire length of the Wentworth Stairs will be closed to allow crews to safely upgrade all existing lighting to LED luminaries, ultimately providing much better lighting on the stairs. To ensure public safety, the Wentworth Stairs will not be accessible to users between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm while crews complete the lighting installations.  

The City thanks residents for their patience and cooperation during this temporary closure.
