Informational meetings about Broadway Streetscape Project

Informational meetings about Broadway Streetscape Project

Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to host two informational meetings regarding the Broadway Streetscape Project on Thursday, February 23rd. The morning session is scheduled for 10:00am-Noon and the evening session for 6:00pm-8:00pm. Both sessions will take place at Kingston’s City Hall, located at 420 Broadway. The sessions are identical and will contain the same presentations.

“This is an excellent opportunity for business and property owners, residents, and all those who travel along Broadway to learn more about this extensive infrastructure project,” said Mayor Noble. “With an infusion of $2.25 million in state funding secured through our 2016 Consolidated Funding Application, we are another step closer towards making Broadway a safer place to drive, walk, and bike.”

The Broadway Streetscape Project is an infrastructure initiative of the City of Kingston, designed to reconstruct Broadway from St. James St. to Grand St. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and traffic flow for motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users. Notable benefits of the project include:

Reduction in motor vehicle crashes at intersections

·  Reduction in travel time along Broadway

·  New ADA-compliant sidewalks

·  Additional and enhanced crosswalks

·  Improved safety of bicycles through use of a dedicated two-way bicycle lane

·  “Green Infrastructure” improvements to reduce storm water runoff and improve streetscape aesthics

·  Addition of appropriately sized trees that will not lift sidewalks

·  New ornamental LED lighting

·  Enhanced landscaping and on-street amenities, including benches, bus stops, etc.

Participants will have the opportunity to gain insight into the project, review the preliminary designs, and provide comments directly to the design consultants. In addition, property owners interested in learning about the construction process and what, if any, impacts they may experience near their properties, will have the opportunity to speak with the design consultants and City staff.

Following the informational sessions, the preliminary designs will be available online at www.kingston-ny.gov/KingstonOnTheMove and a 30 day comment period will be opened for all interested parties to provide feedback. Comments can be sent to Broadway@kingston-ny.gov or mailed to City Hall, 420 Broadway in Kingston, N.Y. 12401.

For more information about the informational meetings, please contact Megan Weiss-Rowe at (845) 334-3964.
