City of Kingston
The project objective is to improve the pavement condition, and pedestrian and bicyclist access and safety, along Hurley Avenue from Washington Avenue to the City of Kingston boundary line with the Town of Ulster. The project will install 16-ADA accessible curb ramps along sidewalks that travel over cross streets along Hurley Avenue. The contractor will be installing bike lanes from Washington Ave. to the Thruway overpass. And from the Thruway overpass to the City line the shoulder will be widened to improve safety for bicyclists. Yellow center lines and fog lines will be striped to more clearly define the lanes of travel.
