Roadwork construction update: September 1

  • Stuart Street between Barrie Street and Lower University Avenue will be closed to through traffic starting Tuesday, September 2 as the contractor will be excavating in the intersection of George Street and Stuart Street. Vehicles needing to access Queen’s and KGH buildings in this area of Stuart Street will still be able to do so, but will not be able to travel through the intersection of George and Stuart and will need to exit the same way they entered. Pedestrian access on Stuart Street and George Street will be maintained throughout.

Custodial cleaning changes

Beginning Sept. 2, there will be some changes to how often some spaces on campus are cleaned by custodial staff. While most areas, including classrooms, washrooms, laboratories, libraries and cafeterias, won’t see any changes, there will be reductions in secondary public spaces and offices.

The university remains committed to maintaining a clean and safe environment for everyone on campus, and these changes will not compromise health and safety. PPS will closely monitor buildings and make adjustments if required.
