City of Kingston
The City of Kingston will, within the budget for the project, improve pedestrian access, traffic circulation, and key intersections within the Stockade Business District as identified in previous transportation plans and including the Albany/Clinton Avenue intersection. Upgrades will improve safety and navigability while attracting tourism, shopping, dining and business activity to the area. Improvements to Schwenk Drive between Washington Avenue and Fair Street will create a desirable, walkable, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly connection to the SBD, and will eventually connect the Kingston Greenline trail system.

Project Status (Updated June 2020)
The City contracted with Hudson Valley Engineering Associates (HVEA) last fall to conduct site and traffic analyses and develop designs for the project. The Project Advisory Committee met to review initial concepts in February and a public survey to collect additional information and viewpoints launched in May. Results of the survey will be analyzed and presented to the PAC for comment. Additional engagement tools will be available on our public engagement site in late June: EngageKingston.com - Uptown Transportation Improvements
. The survey results and additional community feedback will help inform the best direction that the City should take with regard to the types of features the designs should incorporate. The next steps are to narrow preliminary designs for presentation to the general public.
