Steps towards Safer Sidewalks in Kingston

The Kingston City Council recently approved a proposal to use a laser scanning process to survey the condition of some of the city’s busiest sidewalks.

According to the “ Broadway, West O’Reilly Street, Mary’s Avenue and Andrew Street block in Midtown, as well as the Uptown area of John, Crown and North Front streets” will be surveyed. Once complete the city will have a better idea of what areas need work.

Broken sidewalks, poorly lit streets, and areas without proper signage all contribute to dangerous situations for pedestrians and motorists. As the city of Kingston takes a step in the right direction in terms of pedestrian safety, consider doing the same on your own property. Do a thorough walk through, look for areas on the ground that are broken or sunken, and make sure any structural repairs on your property are addressed.
