The City of Kingston is inviting area residents, pedestrians, and cyclists to suggest locations for rest areas along the new multi-use pathway being developed along the north side of Henderson Boulevard.

According to a release from the City of Kingston, dated Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021, this pathway forms part of Route 6 of the City-wide Cycling Network. Those interested in providing input are encouraged to visit Get Involved Kingston.

“We’re asking anyone who may use this pathway to tell us where they think the best locations for rest areas would be along this route,” says Danny Potts, Transportation Engineer, Transportation Services. “Feedback we receive during this engagement will be considered when finalizing the design.”

The new multi-use pathway will provide an off-road option for pedestrians and cyclists to travel along and will create a desired east-west connection between existing cycling infrastructure on Bayridge Drive and Days Road, the City said in the release.

The project’s Get Involved Kingston page will be open for public input until March 10.  The City says construction is planned for this summer.
