Sterling Street Sewer Project to Begin Soon
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that the Sterling Street Sewer and Stormwater Reconstruction project will begin in April.
The Sterling Street Sewer and Stormwater Reconstruction project, which includes replacement of the sanitary sewer along Sterling Street from Henry Street to Cedar Street, is Phase 1 of citywide sewer upgrades. The City of Kingston contracted Greenman Pederson, Inc. (GPI) for the design and Argenio Bros, Inc. for the construction work, which is expected to begin in April. Before the City’s work can begin, Central Hudson will be replacing a gas line in the project area. Once that work is complete, sewer construction work will begin. The project is expected to be completed in July 2023.
“We are looking forward to getting this sewer project underway once the construction season begins,” said Mayor Noble. “The Sterling Street section is the first phase of our citywide sewer repairs to address aging infrastructure across the City of Kingston. Completing the sewer work now will also ensure that underground repairs are completed in advance of the Henry Street Safe Routes to School Project, which will be getting underway soon.”
Detours may be in place during construction, but every attempt will be made to minimize disruption. The street may be closed intermittently to through traffic, but access for residents will be maintained for the duration of construction.
Construction for the Sterling Street Sewer and Stormwater Reconstruction project is expected to cost approximately $822,822 and is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant and from the City of Kingston’s American Rescue Plan funding.
