Detours and Service Updates

Update: Red Hill Valley Parkway closures


Beginning June 14 until mid-July, the southbound/up-bound lanes of the RHVP will be closed between the Queen Elizabeth Way and the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway. During this closure, Route 11 - PARKDALE will be on detour with shuttle service from Mount Albion Loop. The southbound shuttle and detour will travel in the opposite direction to the northbound detour.

Change-over from northbound to southbound detours:

  • Northbound/down-bound: detour continues until June 13 end of service. Note: the detour will continue even though the RHVP may be open during this time.
  • Southbound/up-bound: detour begins June 14 start of service, and runs until mid-July

Customers may experience delays on some HSR routes during this construction. Please leave extra time for your travel to and from the east end of Hamilton and Stoney Creek areas.
