The head of the Downtown Hamilton BIA is hoping city councilors agree to take a closer look at converting more one-way streets into two way.
Kathy Drewitt says says the two-way conversions of James and John Streets have gone well with merchants along those routes reporting a jump in customer traffic and visibility.
She says in some cases that’s lead to increased staffing and longer hours for businesses.
She’s also hoping councillors consider getting truck traffic off King, Main, York and Cannon.
Her comments come as city councillors are looking at a transportation study. which if approved, would kick start a larger transportation master plan update.
Part of that update will evaluate more than 20 of Hamilton’s 90 one-way streets, including major arteries like King, Main, Bay, and Cannon.
