Central Hudson will be conducting a Gas Distribution Improvement Project in the Washington Avenue area of Kingston. In addition to gas main replacements, the project will include the replacement of 150 service lines to residences in the area. This project will begin on Monday, August 27th and road work is expected to be conducted in phases in the area through November. Attached is a map that shows the various phases of the project and the areas that will be impacted.
For some portions of the project, traffic will be allowed in both directions with flaggers. In other phases of the project in which the road must be closed for work during the day, detours will be in place. Please note that work will be conducted from approximately 7:00am until 7:00pm each day. When road closures are necessary, they will be lifted each day by 7:00pm. No commercial traffic will be allowed in the work areas.
The first phase of the project, scheduled to begin on August 27th, will begin along the Boulevard. Traffic will remain open in both directions with flaggers in place. Updates for this project related to traffic pattern changes and detours will be posted at www.kingston-ny.gov under Service News.
