Project construction is scheduled for Spring/Summer of 2022.

The Franklin Street Complete Streets Project will take place along Franklin in Midtown, connecting two of Kingston’s most traveled thoroughfares, Wall Street and Broadway.

In order to improve this corridor and make it safer for all travelers, the City will plant new street trees and construct new sidewalks, ADA-accessible ramps, bicycle infrastructure, and crosswalks along the entire length of Franklin.

This project is supported with $750,000 in funding from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation's Climate Smart Communities Grant Program. It is part of Kingston's larger effort to focus on the revitalization of Franklin Street.

In 2019 Kingston hired design consultants MJ Engineering & Land Surveying of Clifton Park, NY to undertake this project. To date, MJ has completed the survey of existing features and convened initial meetings of the Project Advisory Committee in order to identify some of the community's key needs and concerns.

The City and MJ presented the preliminary design concept on October 6, 2021 at the Everette Hodge Community Center from 5:00 to 7:00pm. You can find a PDF of the preliminary design concept on the right side of this page.

The survey below was closed on November 8, 2021. Survey results can be found on the right side of this page. Please use the "Share Your Thoughts" tab below to leave any additional feedback for the City. With input from the Project Advisory Committee and the broader community, the City will move forward with design to be constructed in 2022.
