FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROOF REPAIR WORK AT CITY HALL WILL AFFECT MAIN ENTRANCE AND PARKING
KINGSTON, N.Y. – Work will begin for repairing the roof at City Hall, starting Thursday, December 19, 2018. The contractor, Titan Roofing of Albany, will begin mobilization of equipment and materials on site this week, and actual construction work will commence on Wednesday, December 26, 2018.
The section of Flannery Drive, the driveway directly in front of City Hall, will be closed off during the roof repair, and will preclude all parking in that area. Access to the front entrance of City Hall will also be closed. The tentative completion date for the project is January 31, 2019. The completion date will be dependent on the weather and any other unforeseen circumstances which could arise and cause a delay of work.
Construction will begin at the back (northerly side) of the building, and is estimated to take approximately two weeks to complete, at which point work will move to the other three sides. During the initial two week work period, parking along the rear (northerly side) of the building will also be restricted. Once the work is completed on that section, the restriction will be lifted and regular parking will resume. The two Accessible parking spaces in the back parking lot will remain open and active for the duration of the roof repair project. Visitors are encouraged to use street parking during this time.
The City Hall roof was last replaced nearly 30 years ago, and suffered severe damage during the March 2 Nor’easter. Emergency repairs were made at the time, but more extensive work was necessary.
