KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Department of Public Works are pleased to announce the next round of paving will be:
- Highland Avenue from Foxhall Ave to E. Chester Street and E. Chester Street to the dead-end
- Hasbrouck Place from Hasbrouck Ave. to Highland Ave.
- Clifton Avenue from Highland Ave. to Park St.
- West O’Reilly Street from Broadway to just beyond Mary’s Ave
DPW will begin preparing the area for paving on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. Milling will begin on or about August 22, and paving is expected to be completed by September 2, 2022, weather depending. During paving, there may be detours and changes in traffic patterns. DPW will be announcing further rounds of paving in the coming weeks.
At last night’s meeting, the Common Council approved Mayor Noble’s proposal for using $750,000 from the City’s Fund Balance to pave or apply topcoat to additional streets and parking lots this paving season.
“The Department of Public Works has been working hard to improve our road infrastructure across our City to catch up on years of deferred maintenance. We have been fortunate to receive funding from a variety of grant resources that have allowed us to pave over 100 street sections since I took office in 2016, but as we know, there is a lot more work to do,” said Mayor Noble. “Many of the roads in the City of Kingston that need paving do not fit within our current grant program guidelines. This year, we have an excess in our Fund Balance, which is best used to pay down debt and for one-off Capital Projects. Using our Fund Balance to allow the Department of Public Works to make necessary improvements to a variety of roadways and parking lots this summer and fall is a great use of our resources.”
In addition to the Department of Public Work’s scheduled paving plans, the following will also be paved or get a fresh topcoat this season:
- Albany Avenue from the rail trail bridge to Flatbush Ave.
- Wilbur Avenue
- Delaware Ave. from near Cordts St up the hill
- North Street from Delaware Ave to Hudson Brickyards
- 1000 feet of the Hudson River Brickyard Trail
- Van Buren Street from Broadway to Furnace Street
- Greenkill Avenue from South Prospect to Iwo Jima Lane
- Hasbrouck Park lower parking lot, upper parking lot, and ADA ramp to bathroom
