member of the Hudson Street Reconstruction Committee.

The project involved the replacement of 2,200 feet of roadway, sidewalks, new storm sewer, curbing, and selected crosswalks in the business district of the Village of Kinderhook. The roadway was completely removed and a full depth reconstruction of the village street was performed. New ADA compliant ramps and granite curbing was installed.

Total construction cost was $332,487. The Village of Kinderhook will be responsible for the future maintenance of the roadway.
