Sewer Work to
Begin on Broadway on February 22
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is
pleased to announce that much-needed sewer repair work on Broadway will begin on
Monday, February 22, 2021.
The project will install
new sanitary sewer pipes to replace old, failing sewer lines along Broadway
from Cedar Street to East St. James Street. There will be no detours or
closures required on Broadway, but there will be no vehicular access to Van Deusen, Downs, and O’Neil Streets from
Broadway. Detour signage will be in place for
access to those side streets. Pedestrian access will be maintained, with signed
pedestrian detours around the work zone.
construction, there will be significant lane changes, with all traffic shifted
to the south side of Broadway. Drivers should be alert for changing traffic
patterns, which will be directed with striping and signage. Traffic signals in
the project limits will be bagged, with temporary stop control on the side
parking in this area of Broadway will be prohibited for the duration of the
project. Public parking lots located next to Sea Deli and at Cornell Street, as
well as adjacent street parking, should be used instead.
“We are pleased that the
work to repair and replace the sewers on Broadway is moving forward,” said
Mayor Noble. “The pipes are 100 years old, and in desperate need of replacing.
We realize this work will coincide with the NYSDOT’s I-587 Roundabout project
and will cause changes in traffic patterns and occasional delays, but this work
is necessary to sustain and grow our City. Once the sewer work is completed,
the Broadway Streetscape project can move toward completion as well. We thank
the public in advance for your patience.”
