City of Kingston to Pave Washington Ave from Schwenk Drive to Lucas Avenue
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Department of Public Works are pleased to announce that Washington Avenue from Schwenk Drive to Lucas Avenue, including the intersection at North Front Street, will be paved next week.
The Department of Public Works will begin preparing the section of Washington Avenue near the Trailways bus terminal on Monday, June 6, 2022. A section of the street from Schwenk Drive to North Front Street will be rebuilt before paving. The construction zone will be set up from Lucas Ave to Hurley Ave with the majority of the work on Washington Ave in front of Trailways. When the work is completed between Schwenk Drive and North Front Street, milling and paving will follow from Schwenk Drive to Lucas Avenue. Paving work is planned to be completed in one week.
“Over the last few winters, this section of Washington Avenue has been severely damaged and at least one section needs to be completely rebuilt,” said Mayor Noble. “We know this is a high traffic area and was sorely in need of repair. I thank DPW and Callanan for prioritizing this much-needed section. During the construction and paving, we ask for the public’s patience and encourage drivers to seek alternate routes during the work next week.”
As previously announced, the Department of Public Works is expected to schedule a round of paving each month until the end of the paving season in November. Milling on Lindsley Avenue from Delaware to East Union, and Walnut Street from the dead-end to Gill St. is tentatively scheduled to begin on Thursday, June 2, weather depending, with paving to follow the week of June 6, 2022.
