The final design of the Highway 15 and Gore Road intersection, as released by the City of Kingston’s Third Crossing Team on Monday, Jun. 15, 2020.

The City of Kingston has released the final design of the intersection of Highway 15 and Gore Road, and is providing an opportunity for residents review the design and ask questions of the team behind it.

The design, led by the Third Crossing team, focuses on active transportation, and an increase in features for cyclists, pedestrians and transit users.

Some of the highlights include sidewalks and pedestrian refuge centres at all four corners of the intersection, off-road cycling facilities and cross-rides so cyclists can move through the intersection easier, a multi-use pathway, and providing bus stops that allow for queue -hopping in all directions for future service.

“As we continue to build transportation infrastructure projects in Kingston, providing more travel options that are focussed on sustainable transportation is a priority,” said Mark Van Buren, Deputy Commissioner of Major Projects Office. “The Third Crossing Project will provide alternative methods of transportation for cyclists, pedestrians, transit users and motorists vehicles to connect to different parts of our city and the larger Kingston region.”

Since September 2019, the team has been researching environmental impacts and on a local, provincial and global scale to best accommodate and support sustainability. Residents can view the final design and ask questions from Monday, Jun 15 to Monday, June 29, 2020 on Kingston’s Get Involved Platform.
