Burlington Street East Name Change to Nikola Tesla Boulevard


Burlington Street East Name Change to Nikola Tesla Boulevard and Sign Replacement

HAMILTON, ON – June 27, 2016 – Please note that a portion of Burlington Street East, from the QEW to 165 metres east of Ottawa Street North, in both directions, will be renamed to Nikola Tesla Boulevard.

Starting on June 29 to July 8, work crews will be replacing a number of signs on Burlington Street East and side roads. It is expected that work will be completed during the evening hours and some lane closures will take place.

On October 6, 2015 the City of Hamilton Planning Committee endorsed the idea of renaming Burlington Street to the Nikola Tesla Expressway. City Council approved the idea later that month.
