null City to clear brush from roadsides this season

December 7, 2017 -

Next week, the City of Kingston's public works crews will begin removing brush from a number of roadsides as part of their regular winter maintenance operations. The work will take place throughout Kingston over the winter and early spring as the weather allows.

"We are basically clearing the City-owned road allowance of brush and branches to improve driveway and street sightlines for motorists and to make it easier to maintain the roadside," says Bill Linnen, operations manager, public works. He notes that addresses in the affected areas will receive a notice.

Watch for public works crews using a mechanical brusher to mulch roadside shrubs, bushes and small trees in the areas listed below. Small wood chips and branches will be left to naturally decompose. Crews work to minimize the wood chips or debris that may land on private property.

Roadside Locations to be Cleared

  • Aragon Road
  • Patterson Road
  • Rudd Avenue/Park Place
  • South end of Butternut Creek Road, Marclen Drive, Deerview Drive, Trillium Lane
  • Ironwood Lane and Grousewood Lane
  • Abbey Dawn Road
  • Leo Lake Road
