The portion of US Route 209 south of Hurley was originally designed to be 4 lanes, extending all the way to Stone Ridge.
With the unbelievable amount of traffic which has exploded on this stretch over the past 40 years, I think it's finally time to finish the rest of the 4-lane portion, to alleviate some of the horrendous traffic here, so that commute-times can be shortened, which would give a significant boost to the Ulster County economy.
Our economy is in shambles here in New York, and the people are desparately yearning and crying out for some good-paying jobs! Completing the southbound portion of 209 would provide the boost this area needs!
Let's finally FINISH some of these infrastructure projects, and bring some good construction jobs here to Ulster County, instead of forcing our citizens and taxpayers to use this dangerous, crumbling, overcrowded, obsolete highway forever!
Let's upgrade, and think about our FUTURE, ULSTER COUNTY!!!

Recently, Apple has been looking to build one of its manufacturing subsidiaries to a location someplace in Upstate, NY, and from what the news stories are saying, they are scoping out different locations throughout the region.
Wouldn't it be great to finally fill up these dilapidated old IBM buildings with another prosperous company instead of just letting the roads crumble and the buildings rot?
Let's bring some jobs back to Kingston! Let's get Apple Inc. to build their manufacturing facility HERE!!!! Let's step it up so that China doesn't get better jobs than WE have!
950 Orlando St Kingston, NY 12401, USA
950 Orlando Street, Lot #5 trailer was condemned weeks ago. There are 2 females living in this trailer where there is no electricity or water. There is human and animal feces all in the yard and on the front and back porches. Garbage is thrown all over and the trailer is slowly falling apart. The smell of urine and other human waste permeates the area.

People are using the shoulder of the road at Adams Fairacre Farm as a turning lane. If one turns from the traffic lane, one risks being hit by a car traveling on the shoulder. This is a dangerous situation. Either mark the shoulder as off limits or put in a right turn lane for the safety of everyone!
76-94 Boices Ln Kingston, NY 12401, USA
The traffic light at the Boice's Lane entrance to Tech City, directly opposite Morton Blvd changes too quickly. The light only turns green for 5 seconds, allowing enough time for one (possibly 2) cars exit from the tech city side before turning red again. The fields on that side of tech city are used for soccer, and it takes forever to get out of there, especially on Saturday. Either this light needs to be timed differently or the Town needs to have an officer there to direct traffic on Saturdays during soccer season.
