Open house invites further input on proposed east-end roadway and intersection designs
June 6, 2016
East-enders are invited to an open house to learn about the progress of the Highway 15 Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) and to offer input on design options for Highway 15 – including options for the intersection of Highway 2 and Highway 15.
"These options reflect what we heard at our first open house. So this next open house is about getting more detailed feedback on design options from the people who actually travel Highway 15 using any mode of travel," says Mark Van Buren, director of engineering.
Drop in between 5:30 and 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 16 at La Salle Secondary School, 773 Highway 15.
The EA study has been examining the current and future transportation needs of pedestrians, cyclists and Kingston Transit in the growing east-end.
This is the second open house being offered during the course of this study, which is considering the transportation network:
- Along Highway 15 from south of Highway 401 to Highway 2; and
- Along Highway 2 from the La Salle Causeway to Princess Mary Avenue In addition to the roadway and intersection design options, the open house will offer:
- An update on the assessment regarding Biscayne Street and Highway 15
- Options to improve the visual character and aesthetics of Highway 15
