See traffic-calming plans for nine streets
April 4, 2016 -
The City is holding two open houses to present traffic-calming plans for sections of these nine streets:
- Elliott Avenue from Leroy Grant Drive to Division Street
- Glen Castle Road from Haverhill Drive to Welborne Park
- Kingsdale Avenue from Armstrong Road to Centennial Drive
- Lancaster Drive from Strand Boulevard/Bridle Path Crescent to Limestone Drive
- Macdonnell Street from Union Street to Hill Street
- Park Street from Regent Street to Victoria Street
- Pine Street from Division Street to Barrie Street
- Rideau Street from North Street to Barrack Street
- York Street from Barrie Street to Carlisle Street
The plans for each street can be viewed at www.CityofKingston.ca/trafficcalming.
"Residents in these areas have expressed concerns about speeding or aggressive driving and the City is addressing these concerns with these traffic-calming measures. The open houses will offer an overview on the measures proposed on each street," says Mark Van Buren.
If the nearby residents are generally in support of the proposed traffic-calming measures, construction to install the measures will be scheduled over the next two years.
The City matches traffic-calming measures to the needs of a street and surrounding neighbourhood. They can include: curb extensions, speed humps, mini-roundabouts, driver, speed signs, raised crosswalks and cycling lanes.

- 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, April 18 in the Rona Room at the INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Rd.
- 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 21 in Memorial Hall, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
