Active Transportation Implementation Plan

The five-year Active Transportation Implementation Plan identifies cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, programming, and operational investments to foster a culture of active transportation in Kingston. The plan prioritizes improvements to create an integrated city-wide active transportation network, identifies opportunities to develop neighbourhood-level connections and outlines plans for programming and policy initiatives.

Intersection Pedestrian Signals 

There are plans to install intersection pedestrian signals at these locations 2019:

  1. Sir John A Macdonald Boulevard at Norman Rogers Drive
  2. Front Road at Lakeview Avenue (school crossing)
  3. Johnson Street at Macdonnell Street (school crossing)

Pedestrian signals at school crossings will improve the level of safety for students walking to/from school and encourage active transportation throughout the day.

The intersection of Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard at Norman Rogers has seen an increase in the number of pedestrians crossings to access the school area on Van Order Drive and the Express transit stop on Palace Road.  The new pedestrian signal will provide a safer, more accessible and inviting pedestrian crossing of Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard and provide a higher quality active transportation connection between the Calvin Park and Sunnyside neighbourhoods.
