Aberdeen Street Reconstruction to Begin in University District

Published on: 2024/06/06 - in News

Kingston’s University District will undergo significant construction this summer to support housing growth and enhance pedestrian safety. The complete reconstruction of Aberdeen Street is scheduled to start in July and conclude in the fall.

“Kingston is working to support housing growth in the City and to improve pedestrian safety,” said Melanie Knowles, Project Manager. “This reconstruction is an opportunity to do both those things while also rehabilitating an iconic Kingston street.”

The project will begin with upgrades to the watermain system. Following the completion of work on the underground pipes, the street will be rebuilt with improved pedestrian access and safety, including a boulevard separated from the roadway.

During the construction period, Aberdeen Street will be fully closed to vehicles, and no on-street parking will be available. Pedestrians will continue to have access to buildings on Aberdeen Street. Garbage and recycling collection will continue with minor alterations. William Street will remain open throughout the construction.
