The intersection of Union and University Streets will be closed all of this week to finish installation of a scramble crossing. It will allow people to cross the intersection in whatever direction they want to.
The 130 thousand dollar project is aimed at increasing safety and reducing delays at the busy intersection.
The LaSalle Causeway will be closed all day tomorrow and all of Wednesday.
Kingston Transit will be using Montreal Street, the 401 and Highway 15 to get to Kingston east.
The storm that brought an end to the heat wave flooded Kingston roads and knocked out power.
Utilities Kingston says trees or tree branches came down and knocked down power lines in five locations yesterday afternoon.
Power was off in the central part of the city…including St. Lawrence College.
Bath Road near the Frontenac Mall, Gardiners Road at the underpass and Place D’Armes in downtown Kingston were a few of the spots that were under about half a metre of water.
Power was also knocked out in areas north of Kingston but Hydro One had restored the power in those areas by early this morning.
Drone – Collins Bay
It turns out a drone was used to drop a package into the prison courtyard at Collins Bay Insitution earlier this month. The Whig Standard reports sources say the drop happened on the evening of August 5th and the package was quickly seized by correctional staff.
The Correctional Service made no mention of the drone in a news release that stated a package was found containing a cellphone and 180 grams of tobacco.
The Whig says the package also contained narcotics.
A lockdown was ordered after the package was seized and a search of the institution lasted for almost a week before the lockdown ended.
Miss Sophie is everything you are looking for in the purrrfecttt feline. Sophie was adopted from us previously, and with a heavy heart needed to be returned due to allergies. She was a very loved kitty, and can’t possibly understand why she is back up for adoption. Her previous owner reports that she is very good on the harness and leash and enjoys going for walks. Also, that Sophie is a cuddly and friendly girl with everyone she meets. Sophie loves sitting by the window and interacts well with other animals. She would enjoy living alone, and being the only feline or could do well in a home with other fur siblings too! Also, don’t forget the temptations when you adopter her…those are a favourite!
