What's Happening

Four bat houses have been installed on the east shore

As part of our work with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, four bat houses were installed on April 30 on the east shore. The mix of standard and nursery bat houses were installed in the north side of the meadow on the Pittsburgh Library property. Another 18 bat houses are also planned to offset the removal of the 35 snag trees within the east approach. The location of these houses will be developed as part of the landscaping plans for the bridge and may also include other locations in Kingston. The bat houses are planned on a replacement ratio of 10 bat houses per hectare of impacted woodlands. Read more about the bat houses on our recent newsletter.

Near neighbour meetings on noise wall

The project team held two ‘street meetings' with smaller groups of residents at the Pittsburgh Library to provide information on the noise wall along Gore Road and Point St. Mark. More information on the final options for the noise wall will be available in the coming months, and the team hopes to have the walls built in the fall in advance of active construction on the east shore.

Outreach with community organizations

The team continues to engage and respond to questions from residents and community groups as the project moves into construction. The team recently connected with the Kingston Field Naturalists to provide information on trees, bats and environmental considerations of the bridge.
