KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Superintendent of Public Works are pleased to announce the next round of paving will be Roosevelt Avenue from Albany Avenue to Kiersted Avenue and Cornell Street from Broadway to Foxhall Avenue.

Milling on Cornell Street is expected to begin Monday, October 16, and paving is expected to be completed by Friday, October 20, 2023.
“These two large paving projects will close out DPW’s paving season,” said Mayor Noble. “I want to thank the Department of Public Works for all their great work on restoring our roads across the City of Kingston. We also wanted to make everyone aware of the Central Hudson paving and restoration project Uptown, which will also be happening mid-October. We thank everyone for their patience as we finish out the season with a bang.”
Ed Norman, Superintendent of Public Works said, “As the DPW closes out this year’s paving season, I once again ask the public to be mindful of our staff working within the construction areas.
