Open house invites input on transportation in Highway 15 area

November 23, 2015 -

East-enders are invited to an open house to offer input on a study of transportation needs in the area of Highway 15.

The open house is 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 26 at La Salle Secondary School, 773 Highway 15.

"We want to hear about your transportation experience in the east-end. The area has grown significantly over the past decade and this study is about identifying the best ways to accommodate increased traffic," says Mark Van Buren, director of engineering.

The City of Kingston has launched a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study to review the transportation needs of:

  • Highway 15 from the 401 to Highway 2, and
  • Highway 2 from the La Salle Causeway to Princess Mary Avenue

The Highway 15 Class EA will consider the current and future transportation needs of pedestrians, cyclists, Kingston Transit and vehicles in light of the recent and expected growth in this area.

The City has contracted HDR consultants to assist with the Class EA and public consultations on this project, which is expected to be completed by the summer of 2016. Residents will be asked for input at several points in the process.  Stay up-to-date on this project at www.CityofKingston.ca/Highway15.
