Federal Funding Approved
Mark Gerretsen, Member of Parliament for Kingston and Islands, announces that Infrastructure Canada will contribute $60 million – its one-third share of the funding – toward building the Third Crossing. This funding, along with that contributed by the province and the City, enables the City to begin work to build this bridge over the Cataraqui River. Construction is expected to begin in 2019.
Phase 4 preparatory work underway: Detailed Design & Construction
City Council established the Third Crossing Bridge Project as a key priority in their 2015-2018 Strategic Plan. On November 21, 2017 City Council directed staff to move forward with preparatory work for Phase 4, the detailed design and construction phase, which includes advancing proposal documents into a ready state pending confirmation of funding from the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
As we move forward, feedback from residents and stakeholders continue to be important to the project. Communication and engagement initiatives are an essential component of Phase 4 (detailed design, pre-construction and construction activities), so please stay connected with us on the road ahead.
