Upper Ottawa Street is an Upper City (mountain) arterial road in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It starts off at Mountain Brow Boulevard in the north and extends southward where it ends just past Rymal Road at the South Hamilton Industrial Park. It is a two-way street throughout. As with most of the "Upper" streets, their addresses start at roughly the point where their lower counterpart finishes just below the Escarpment and were originally labelled without the "Upper" prefix.

History[edit]

Named Upper Ottawa Street because it is in approximate alignment with Ottawa Street in Lower City Hamilton. Ottawa Street is known as the Fabric & Textile District and is Hamilton's "Decor Destination." [1] In actuality, it is aligned with Balmoral Avenue South, which runs from Lawrence Road (south) to Barton Street East (north).
