State of Fort Frontenac wall forces immediate closure of sidewalk near La Salle Causeway
April 12, 2019 -
The City of Kingston is immediately closing the sidewalk along Ontario Street between The Tragically Hip Way and the east side of the La Salle Causeway for public safety reasons.
A recent assessment, completed by the Department of National Defence, of the historic stone wall by Fort Frontenac (where Ontario Street curves toward the Causeway), found that it is in need of urgent structural repairs.
The City and the Department of National Defence are working to determine an alternate route for pedestrians and will announce it as soon as possible.
Media inquiries about the structural safety and repair plan for the wall can be directed to Captain Jeremy Mathews, public affairs officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
