Kincardine Queen Street Reconstruction

Cherie Leslie, Adam Weishar, and Darren Alexander welcome the public to the Queen Street Reconstruction Open House held in the fall.
Thank you for joining us at the Queen Street Reconstruction Open House Event this fall. We are planning additional events in the New Year to share more project updates with businesses and the community. 
Our goals for the reconstruction is to...
  • Improve the accessibility for sidewalks and building entrances
  • Update the storm sewers, sanitary sewers, watermains and other services
  • Include more movable planters to improve green space 
  • Create a cohesive design with the Beach, Harbor Street and Queen Street
  • Include traffic calming measures to enhance pedestrian safety
Area of Construction
The portion of Queen Street that will be impacted during the Reconstruction project will extend from Durham Market Street South to Durham Street.

New Street Design 

After reviewing several street cross sections, the working group preferred a new cross section design that includes an additional drive-over curb. The drive-over curb visually separates parking spaces from the traveled portion of the road, helping to slow vehicular traffic and also improves accessibility into many businesses. With this new design we can remove steps from the sidewalks into many of the downtown businesses so stores are more accessible to everyone.

Municipal staff are meeting with the various groups, like the Kincardine Pipe Band, to determine where they can perform and where events can be hosted during the Reconstruction of Queen Street. Stay tuned for more information in the New Year.
