Unfortunately, there are still lots of tractor trailers travelling on Main, King and Cannon. And they are clearly not making local deliveries!

I agree that the hope was that the RHVP would reduce or eliminate cut-through heavy truck traffic through downtown, but I have not seen any evidence of a significant change. Cannon street in particular is still full of heavy trucks, and they are common on Main St.

Of course, one way to guarantee a change would be to eliminate the "truck route" designation for these streets so only the shortest route between pickup/deliveries and a designated truck route would be allowed (not cut-through traffic), but the City has refused to consider that.

In Hamilton almost every arterial street is a designated truck route.
