City to install bike lane bollards
May 21, 2019
The City of Kingston is installing bike lane bollards on Johnson Street, Brock Street,John Counter Boulevard and Taylor Kidd Boulevard starting this week to create an added separation between cyclists and vehicles.
"Bike lane bollards make cycling a safer and more comfortable experience. They are just one of the ways we are working to promote active transportation and make Kingston more bike-friendly," says Ian Semple, director, transportation services. Watch for the bollards to go up after line-painting for the bike lanes is completed on these streets.
- Johnson and Brock streets from Sir John A. Macdonald to Division
- John Counter Boulevard from Sir John A. Macdonald to Division
- Taylor Kidd Boulevard from Princess to the Rio Can entrance
Bike lane bollards are used on roads with higher traffic volumes and speed. They add a 0.5m buffer to the existing 1.5m-wide bike lane. They are installed in the spring and will be taken down in the fall before the snow flies.
