September Paving Projects Announced
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Department of Public Works are pleased to announce the next round of paving for September will be:
- Van Buren Street from Broadway to Furnace
- Clifton Avenue from Highland Avenue to Flatbush Avenue
Starting on or about Tuesday, September 13, 2022, Van Buren Street will be paved, weather depending. There may be detours and changes in traffic patterns.
In addition to the portion of Clifton Avenue just paved in the last round (Park to Highland, and around the veteran memorial at Highland and Clifton) and with support from Central Hudson, the remainder of Clifton Avenue will be restored. Preparation in this area has already begun. Milling is expected to begin on or about Thursday, September 22, with paving completed by September 30, 2022, weather depending.
Mayor Noble said, “In addition to the recently announced Wilbur Avenue paving project starting in September, our Department of Public Works will be continuing to pave throughout the City into this fall. This month, we are pleased to work with Central Hudson to fully restore Clifton Avenue after their gas line replacement work there left the roadway in disrepair, and to provide a topcoat on Van Buren, as gas and sewer work is planned for the future.”
DPW Superintendent Ed Norman said, “Working together with Central Hudson has given the DPW the opportunity to properly repair Clifton Avenue and with their contribution in funding, it has eased the burden to the taxpayers of the City of Kingston. The funding goes further in the purchase of materials needed for the paving projects and provides a more efficient use of time and money, along with a better finished product. I look forward to continuing this collaboration as they work in our City to improve the gas infrastructure. I would like to remind people again to be aware and alert to our staff when traveling through our work zones. Safety is everyone’s responsibility.”
