Final reports on Third Crossing business plan and preliminary design now posted

June 2, 2017 -

The final reports on the business plan and preliminary design for the proposed Third Crossing across the Cataraqui River are now available on the City of Kingston's website.

"These are the reports council will use to make its decision on the proposed bridge. The final reports reflect the community input we have received in the last month since we released the drafts – and the history of community input and council direction provided since the environmental assessment for the Third Crossing started in 2009," says Mark Van Buren, director of engineering.

The results of phases two and three of the Third Crossing Action Plan will be presented at a special meeting of council at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13. The agenda for that meeting will be available on the City's website on June 6 along with the final report on the project's public engagement. This report will reference the engagement on these phases of work, including what was heard and how community  input, where applicable, is reflected in the preliminary design and business plan. 

If council decides to move forward with the Third Crossing at the meeting of June 13, the next step would be to develop final design requirements and procurement documents for the construction of the bridge.

Council meetings are live-streamed on the Kingston City Council YouTube channel and live-Tweeted @KingstonMeetings.
