January 18, 2016 – Three key infrastructure projects headline work being done in Kingston, Ont. in 2016.

According to a report from kingstonregion.com, while most people will focus on the $12 million Big Dig, tearing up a large section of well-travelled Princess Street for underground and surface work, there are two other core projects that will see work done in 2016:

• The runway at Norman Rogers Airport will be extended by 1,000 feet as part of a $16 million expansion and renovation. Work on the added section of runway is expected to begin in the fall.
• Preliminary work will begin on a new bridge that will cross the train tracks near the VIA Rail station. Materials will be stockpiled in preparation for the new roadway, with construction continuing in 2017 and 2018.

There will also be several bike lanes added in 2016, throughout various parts of the city, as well as additional maintenance work.
