Upper Wentworth Street is an Upper City (mountain) arterial road in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It starts off at Concession Street in the north and extends southward past Rymal Road. 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 Wentworth Street because it is in alignment with Wentworth Street in the Lower City Hamilton. Wentworth Street is named after Sir John Wentworth, lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia, from 1792 to 1808.[1]
