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.
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. Over the next two months, contractors for the City will be repairing the following roads:
- Burbrooke Road from Jackson Mills Road and Sydenham Road (starts Oct. 3)
- McIvor Road from Sydenham Road to Highway 38
- Highway 2 west of Collins Bay Road to western city limit
- Morenz Crescent
- Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard from Highway 401 to Union Street
- Gardiners Road from Highway 401 to Bath Road
- Front Road from Sunny Acres to east entrance of INVISTA

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.
Please note: scheduled work to complete the previous infrastructure plan is not shown on map.
- Work in Williamsville is due for completion in 2015 and so is not reflected on the map above as it was contained in the 2011- 2014 infrastructure plan. See more information on it and other ongoing City projects.
- Work also continues in 2015 in the area of Kingston General Hospital on Okill, Stuart and Arch streets as scheduled in the 2011-2014 infrastructure plan.
