Sec­ond up­graded park­ing lot re­opens

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

KINGSTON >> The sec­ond of two ren­o­vated Up­town park­ing lots re­opened Mon­day.

“We are happy to re­port that both lots on North Front St. are now OPEN! Thanks for your pa­tience,” the city said in a tweet Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The two park­ing lots are across North Front Street from each other — one next to Nekos-Dedrick’s Phamacy, the other next to the Red­wood Bar + Restau­rant (the for­mer Par­ent-Teacher Store).

The lot next to Red­wood was the one that re­opened Mon­day. The lot across the street was repaved, striped and re­opened last month.

The im­prove­ment of the two lots is cost­ing a to­tal of $486,000, of which the state is kicking in $366,000.

As part of the project, a new drainage sys­tem has been in­stalled to pre­vent stor­wa­ter runoff into the nearby Eso­pus Creek, and plant­ings in the spring will re­place trees that had to be taken down.
