KINGSTON – After a large
sinkhole forced the closure of much of Washington Avenue in Kingston years
ago, the street will finally be reopened to regular traffic on Monday,
May 23 at 9 a.m.
Mayor Steven Noble said the street will be open but repairs are still necessary to address a grout blockage in an underground sewer line. Between now and Monday, city crews are addressing a “punch list” of items, he said.
“We are working on making sure that curbing and the landscaping and everything we had to repair people’s yards; make sure all of that is done before we open it up for traffic,” the mayor said.
Noble said reopening the street is “the next step towards restoring the economic wellbeing and quality of life in this neighborhood.”
