null City hosts open house on Bath Road bikeway and multi-use path
March 20, 2017 -
The City of Kingston invites residents to come to an open house to find out more about the Bath Road bikeway and multi-use path to be built from Collins Bay Road to Coverdale Drive.
The open house is at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28 at Legion 631, 4034 Bath Rd.
"This project is a significant addition to the City's active transportation network and will encourage more people to choose to walk or cycle along this scenic waterfront route," says Mark Van Buren, director of engineering.
The preferred design option being presented for discussion at the open house will reduce the number of vehicular lanes from 4 to 2 (one lane in each direction). This reduction will provide space for the new separated bikeway and multi-use path.
The Bath Road bikeway and multi-use path will connect two existing sections of the Waterfront Trail, making it a more attractive choice for those who want to walk, cycle or use a wheelchair to get to their destination.
The project is supported by $268,500 in funds from the Government of Ontario through the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program.
