City invites resident feedback on King St. multi-use pathway rest areas
July 11, 2019 -
As part of the City's ongoing efforts to make it easier to get around Kingston through active modes of transportation, new multiuse pathways are being developed along the north and south side of King St. from Trailhead Pl. to Portsmouth Ave. As the City finalizes the design for this project, it is inviting area residents, pedestrians and cyclists to suggest locations for rest areas along the pathway and get a better understanding of the project. Those interested in providing input on the rest areas are encouraged to visit the Get Involved page for the project.
"We want to make sure local residents and anyone who may use this pathway have a chance to weigh in on the best locations for rest areas along the route" says Mark Dickson, project manager for the Transportation Services department with the City of Kingston. "We will consider all feedback received during this engagement before finalizing the design of the multi-use path."
This project was identified in the Active Transportation Master Plan, approved by Council in June 2018, and construction will coincide with water main work being completed in the area by Utilities Kingston. The City is also making intersection improvements at King St. and Portsmouth Ave. to make it easier for residents using the new multiuse pathways to connect with existing cycling facilities. The timeline for construction will be confirmed after the design is finalized.
For any accessibility feedback related to the project please contact the person listed on the Get Involved page (in accordance with Ontario Regulation 191/11).
The project's Get Involved page will be open for public input until July 25.
