City to add cycling lanes to Brock & Johnson Streets
June 26, 2014 -
Dedicated cycling lanes are being added on Brock and Johnson Streets between Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard and Division Street in July.
These key routes are being made more bike-friendly to encourage more people to choose cycling – and other more sustainable forms of transportation – to travel to the city's core.
"Cycling is an active, economical and environmentally-friendly transportation choice. We are continuing to build more bike-friendly infrastructure to augment and define Kingston's cycling routes," says Mark Van Buren, Director of Engineering. He reminds motorists and cyclists to review and observe the rules of sharing the road as defined in the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.
The City has notified residents living along the affected routes that parking is being removed to accommodate the cycling lanes. Leaflets regarding the removal of parking are also being distributed to cars parked along Brock and Johnson Streets.
