City to restore eroded shoreline along stretch of Bath Road
November 2, 2017 -
The City of Kingston is set to begin work to restore a stretch of eroded shoreline along Bath Road from George's Marina to approximately 300m west to 4002 Bath Rd. Silt fencing will be put up prior to construction to protect wildlife and keep it out of the work area. Starting Monday, an eastbound lane closure will be needed to accommodate this work and will be in place until mid-December.
"This is just one of the projects the City needs to undertake to address damage due to spring flooding. We continue to collect information to prioritize projects linked to this year's high water levels," says Mark Campbell, acting director of engineering.
He notes that the City has consulted with all agencies with an interest in shoreline work and has obtained the necessary permits.
The areas where water intersects with roadways, and particularly where roadways run alongside the lake, are being surveyed and study results are expected to be available in late this year.
