City invites resident feedback on Rideau Trail multi-use pathway rest areas
July 25, 2019 -
The City of Kingston is seeking input on where it could potentially place rest areas (benches) along a planned 840 m multi-use path from the end of Queen Mary Road (just above Bath Road) to the end of Parkway (just below Princess Street).
"Recent public engagement on the draft Active Transportation Implementation Plan showed us that this multi-use pathway is a priority for residents. It will create connections with existing cycling infrastructure in the area, building on the active transportation network across the city," says Ian Semple, director, transportation services.
Interested residents are invited to go to GetInvolved.CityofKingston.ca to submit input on where benches could be placed as potential rest locations by Thursday, Aug. 8. All feedback received will be considered in the final design of the pathway.
Construction of the multi-use path will take advantage of an opportunity to work jointly with Utilities Kingston as it twins a sewer line beneath this corridor. Work on the hard-surface path is expected to begin in the spring of 2020.

For any accessibility feedback related to the project please contact the person listed on the Get Involved page (in accordance with Ontario Regulation 191/11).
The project's Get Involved page will be open for public input until Aug. 8.
