null Work at King and Portsmouth to detour traffic

September 14, 2015 –

Starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow, westbound traffic on  King Street West will be detoured around work being done at the intersection of King and Portsmouth. Crews are completing underground work to a sanitary sewer crossing. 

Drivers will notice Kingston Police helping to direct traffic in this area.

Eastbound drivers: you will be able to drive down King Street West as usual, but the eastbound left turn lane may be closed, so you may have to turn left off King at Cartwright.

Westbound drivers: turn right on Cartwright Street, left on Baiden, south onto Portsmouth to get back onto King.

Southbound drivers on Portsmouth Avenue who want to go east: turn left onto Baiden and then onto Cartwright to return to King.

Kingston Transit buses will also be following the above detours.
