The 2015 to 2018 Infrastructure Plan
The City and Utilities Kingston work together to improve the network of roads, sidewalks and utility services within the city. Included in the map are scheduled construction projects to City streets, sidewalks, street furniture, bridges, bikeways and traffic infrastructure for 2015-18. Click on it for information about each project.
Work on some projects continues into 2019 as the City and Utilities Kingston work on a new infrastructure plan to coincide with the 2018-2022 term of council.
The City builds and maintains thousands of kilometres of roads, sidewalks and other transportation infrastructure so that traffic – pedestrians, cyclists and motorists – can move safely and efficiently. Please visit the links below for information on these major infrastructure projects:
- John Counter Boulevard - widening from Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard to Princess Street
- Princess Street reconstruction - phase three
- Bikeways and cycling infrastructure
- Traffic calming and intersection improvements
Cold-patch is used to fill cracks and potholes. But some roads require more substantial asphalt repairs that will last up to five years.
Motorists and cyclists can keep up with where/when repair work is taking place by:
- Following @CityofKingston on Twitter for daily updates.
- Signing up for Breaking News at www.CityofKingston.ca/news to receive Friday Traffic Reports mentioning more major repairs.
How the City plans infrastructure improvements:
The City works with Utilities Kingston to develop multi-year plans for infrastructure improvements.
Multi-year planning offers opportunities for efficiencies with data collection, contractor procurement, shovel-ready design necessary for grants from upper levels of government, improved coordination between project stakeholders and improved communication.
Projects are selected based on a number of factors: existing long-term infrastructure plans, various master plans, condition and risk assessments and need for new infrastructure to support development.
