FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Paving season begins in the City of Kingston
KINGSTON, N.Y. Mayor Steve Noble and the City of Kingston’s Department of Public Works are pleased to announce current and upcoming paving and accessibility projects. The first round of paving is currently underway at East Chester St. Extension, Kingston Terrace, Lisa Lane, and Tammany St., from East Chester St. to the dead end.
The paving program also includes installation of handicap accessible curb ramps at intersections in paved areas. These must be installed prior to paving. Bids for curb ramp installations will be opened on June 28th, with award and construction of ramps to follow. Additional locations to be paved later in the year after the ramp construction and installations include:
- Browning Terrace
- Conway Place
- Crown St., from North Front St. to Green St.
- Derrenbacher St.
- Fort St.
- Furnace St., from Franklin St.to Henry St.
- Hewitt Place
- Main St., from Washington Ave. to Wall St.
- Manor Place, from Wilson Ave. to Roosevelt St.
- Pearl St., from Green St. to Washington Ave.
- Schryver Ct.
- South Farrelly St.
“With a combined total of over $1 million invested in paving projects during the 2016 and 2017 paving seasons, we are making significant strides in improving our aging roads,” said Mayor Noble. “However, with 84.75 miles of road to maintain, we are aware that there are additional streets that require paving. We will continue to update the list of paving projects on a regular basis.”
The City of Kingston is able to complete these significant paving projects thanks to shared services with neighboring communities, including the towns of Esopus, Ulster, and Kingston, as well as the Ulster County Department of Public Works.
Updates will be sent to local media and posted on the City’s website (www.kingston-ny.gov) and Facebook page as paving projects are scheduled.
