City of Kingston Announces Paving of Boulevard/Route 32
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Department of Public Works are pleased to announce that Boulevard (Route 32) will be paved from the City line to Greenkill Avenue. Preparation has begun, with milling to begin next week and paving to be completed by October 16, weather depending.
“We are continuing to make infrastructure improvements on our most traveled roads throughout the City,” said Mayor Noble. “I want to thank our Department of Public Works for their hard work in making these important improvements happen with as little disruption as possible.”
NYS Department of Transportation crews are currently moving along Boulevard installing sidewalks and retaining walls, with flaggers directing traffic. Drivers should expect long delays in traffic during the next two weeks and are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
Drivers should also be aware of changing traffic patterns along Greenkill Avenue. NYS Department of Transportation has been completing the Empire State Trail south section, which connects the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail to the Jansen Avenue trailhead of the Kingston Point Rail Trail. The paved and landscaped trail travels along Boulevard/Route 32, Greenkill Avenue, and Broadway. Funding for the Empire State Trail comes from NY State-dedicated transportation funds.
