Mayor Noble Announces Next Round of Paving Will Be Pearl Street
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Department of Public Works are pleased to announce that the next round of paving will be Pearl Street from Johnston Avenue to the city line.
Preparation has already begun in this area. Milling is expected to begin Monday, July 17, 2023. Paving is expected to begin Thursday, July 20 and be completed by Friday, July 21, weather depending.
Mayor Noble said, “Now that Central Hudson has completed their gas line replacement work in the area, we are able to pave Pearl Street from Johnston Avenue to the city line. We thank the public, and Uptown residents especially, for their patience as Central Hudson completed their project. Our Public Works Department will continue to announce paving projects into November, if weather allows.”
During the milling and paving operation, all vehicles must remain off the street. Once the paving process begins, access/egress will be denied until the blacktop cools enough for normal vehicular traffic, approximately three to five hours. Drivers are urged to use caution; the roadway will be uneven during the milling process making the surface subject to tripping hazards or tire damage. The road will be closed for the safety of all residents and pedestrians. Never move or go around barricades.
When blacktop is initially laid, the material is extremely hot. Please do not walk on or touch the newly laid material. Severe burns may occur to humans and animals. Vehicles or bicycles driven on freshly laid material will leave permanent indentations in the roadway and may damage tires.
