LAMP Update: Pedestrian-related improvements at Library Square
At the June 16, 2015 City of Kingston council meeting, a report was presented to council examining the feasibility of a pedestrian “scramble” crossing at the intersection of University and Union, a key crossing point at Queen’s and a gateway to campus.
Council unanimously approved the installation of the scramble, and the changes are targeted to be in place for September. The planned improvements at the Library Square intersection include audible signals, a right-turn-on red ban and thermoplastic “brick pavers” crosswalk markings. These changes prioritize pedestrian movement, accessibility and safety at the intersection.
Please see The Report of the President and CEO of Utilities Kingston for more information on the recommendations, and see the Library and Archives Master Plan for a vision of the Queen’s Library and Archives of the present and the future.
