Mayor Noble Announces Completion of 2023 Paving Season
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to recap the paving and construction projects in 2023. The last paving project, Roosevelt Avenue from Albany Avenue to Kiersted Avenue, was completed last week. Previous paving projects in 2023 include:
“This year, we were able to pave over 4 miles of roadways that includes 18 streets, the driveway and parking lot at Hasbrouck Park, as well as North Street leading to the Empire State Trail,” said Mayor Noble. “I want to thank the Department of Public Works and our partners at Callanan Industries for all their hard work this paving season. Over the last eight years, we have paved more than one third of all Kingston’s streets, and we will look forward to continuing this work in the spring.”
Ed Norman, Superintendent of Public Works said, “I would like to thank the DPW staff and Callanan Industries for the excellent work they have provided to the City on the multiple paving projects this year. We have had a great paving season and were able to resurface a substantial number of streets. Thanks also to the public for their patience with the numerous detours and being mindful of our staff’s safety while working in the streets.”
In addition, as part of the Henry Street Safe Routes to School project, Henry Street has been paved from Wall Street to just past Clinton Avenue, and from Broadway to Sterling Street. Due to ongoing sewer work, the remainder of the paving will be completed in the spring.
To date, 92 ADA compliant ramps have been completed on Clifton Avenue, Roosevelt Avenue, Walnut Street, E. Union Street, Gill Street, Highland Avenue, Hasbrouck Place, Stephan Street, Smith Avenue and N. Front Street. Restoration work included 110 feet of bluestone sidewalk on N. Front Street and the installation of 40 new feet of concrete sidewalk on Roosevelt Avenue.
