See traffic-calming plans for six streets at open houses
March 31, 2015 -
The City is holding two open houses to present traffic-calming plans for these six streets:
- Patrick Street from Railway to Russell
- Lancaster Drive from Limestone to Dunham
- Alfred Street from Princess to Concession
- Hudson Drive at Bayridge Public School
- Helen Street from Mack to Carruthers
- Place d'Armes at King Street
The plans for each street can be viewed at www.CityofKingston.ca/trafficcalming.
"These traffic-calming measures are planned in response to resident concerns about aggressive driving behaviours including speeding. They are concerned for the safety of their neighbourhoods and their quality-of-life," says Mark Van Buren, director of engineering.
The City matches traffic-calming measures to the needs of a street and surrounding neighbourhood. They can include: curb extensions, speed humps and mini-roundabouts.

- 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, April 13 in the Rona Room at the INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Rd.
