After an incredible 22 inches of snow blanketed our region, our Department of Public Works is continuing efforts to clear roadways throughout the City. Prior to the storm, Mayor Noble declared a Snow Emergency and Local State of Emergency. Crews were dispatched immediately to maintain access to emergency routes. On Wednesday, March 15th, Mayor Noble requested assistance through Ulster County Emergency Management to Governor Cuomo's office. That assistance has now been approved and crews and equipment from the NYS Department of Transportation will begin work in Kingston at 9:00am on Monday, March 20th.
Below is a detailed list of streets included in Monday's snow removal operation in Midtown Kingston.
Daytime Monday, beginning at 9:00am:
Due to the large equipment being brought in and the narrow width of the streets, there will be NO parking, beginning at 9:00am, on the streets listed in the first sections below. Once a street has been cleared of snow, vehicles may return and park.
Perpendicular to Broadway
St James Street
Van Buren Street
Van Deusen Street
Parallel to Broadway
Green Street (Between Maiden and St James)
Iwo Jima Ln
When this work is completed, the crews will move to the other side of Broadway.
Parking on this side of Broadway will be restricted to one side. Parking will not be allowed on the ODD side of the Street.
Crews will remove snow from the ODD sides of:
Perpendicular to Broadway:
Parallel to Broadway:
Ten Broeck Avenue
S. Manor Avenue
Crews will then move to Broadway and remove snow from Greenkill Avenue to Foxhall Avenue in the Evening and Overnight hours on Monday, 3/20. This work will be done at night to reduce impacts on local traffic. Signs have been posted but will not go into effect until late Monday evening.
Work not finished in any of these areas will proceed into Tuesday. An update will be sent out later on Monday to update the current status of snow removal efforts and to announce plans for Tuesday. Please continue to check
