Third Crossing - West Shore Roadwork

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


The City of Kingston continues to build a Third Crossing bridge across the Cataraqui River from the foot of Gore Road in the city's east-end to connect with John Counter Boulevard on the west shore of the Cataraqui River. The new bridge will help to connect the east and west side communities, provide additional transportation capacity to support continued growth and development, improve access for emergency services, and provide a safe and enjoyable infrastructure to promote active transportation such as walking and cycling.

As the construction work continues, the project team is looking ahead to the road work that is being planned for the west shore of the project site. The purpose of this pagee is to allow residents to review the final road design planned for the west shore; to gain an understanding of the road design and considerations given to safe and efficient movement of pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular traffic; and to ask questions of the project team. Please note that the Third Crossing project team will be providing future public engagement opportunities for residents with an interest in the site restoration and landscaping work that will be planned for the west shore and the bridge. Stay tuned for this public engagement planned for early 2022.

Interim improvements to John Counter Blvd and Montreal St.

This public engagement focuses on the road work planned between the bridge and Montreal St including interim improvements to the intersection of Montreal St and John Counter Blvd. The City of Kingston has recently received Federal grant funding that will enable the full reconstruction of the intersection at Montreal St and John Counter Blvd to provide necessary improvements for transit and active transportation facilities. This separate project will commence with public engagement and design work in 2022, with construction work to commence in 2023.

Residents can view the final road design, including interim improvements, in the ‘Display boards’ section below and download the pdf slides. If you have questions, please feel free to ask the project team in the 'Question' section.
