Second upgraded parking lot reopens
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.
