Morriston bypass promised

The Ontario government is promising to begin construction in 2019 of a Highway 6 bypass around Morriston.

That will delight grain truckers moving in and out of Hamilton harbour, truckers hauling hogs to the packing plant in Burlington and Maple Leaf Foods Inc. moving its products from its new plant in Hamilton to its new distribution centre at Highways 6 and 401, just north of Morriston.

There has been lobbying for a bypass since 1978.
