Waaban Crossing

“Whether you are using the Waaban Crossing and roadway to commute, run errands, visit friends and family, or simply see the view of the Cataraqui River, please remember that safety comes first,” the City of Kingston said. “Be aware of your surroundings, obey the rules of the road and follow all signs and traffic signals. Be mindful that illegal u-turns and shortcutting can pose serious safety issues to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. We understand that it will take time to get used to using the bridge and new intersections. Stay safe and be mindful of other road users, especially during poor weather conditions.”
