null City making improvements to the Waterfront Trail at the Coal Dock
September 14, 2016 -
Construction has started on pathway improvements to the Waterfront Trail at the Coal Dock, beside the former Kingston Psychiatric Hospital. Pathway users, please note that the path may close at times to allow machinery to access construction areas.
The federal and provincial governments, who own the lands in this area, have permitted the City of Kingston to build an accessible pathway along this section of the waterfront. The improvements include an asphalt path, modifications to a retaining wall, safety fencing and seating.
The construction of this key link in the waterfront pathway is a part of the City'sWaterfront Master Plan. The work is expected to be completed this fall.
