Cycling lanes coming to Brock and Johnson St.

July 24, 2014 -

Monday morning, motorists and cyclists will notice new dedicated cycling lanes on Brock and Johnson Streets between Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard and Division Street.  The lanes are scheduled to be painted overnight on Sunday, weather permitting.

Then, during the first week of August, Sharrows – the chevron-type road symbols that remind motorists and cyclists to share the road – will be added to the middle of the right-hand lane of Brock and Johnson Streets from Division Street down to King Street.

"These planned measures formalize the bikeway on these streets to make them choice routes for cyclists to and from downtown. We hope creating a more bike-friendly city will further encourage cycling as a healthy, environmentally-friendly and economical way to get around Kingston," says Mark Van Buren, Director of Engineering.

To see more on the City's plans to make Kingston more bike-friendly – and review the rules for sharing the road that apply to all vehicles – see www.CityofKingston.ca/cycling
