Open House- Hector Street Complete Street Project

City of Ithaca staff and consulting engineers will host a public open house style meeting for The Hector Street Complete Street Project on Monday, May 7, 2018 from 4pm to 6pm in the cafeteria of Lehman Alternative Community School at 402 Chestnut St, Ithaca, NY. The open house will showcase the current draft proposals for the corridor that were developed based on the City’s grant application, which was awarded by the NYS DOT in June 2017.  Erdman Anthony, consultant engineers, are currently working on an updated plan that will be presented at the public meeting.

The study area covers the portion of Hector Street (also known as Route 79), from Floral Avenue (Rt 13A) to 500 feet past the City/Town boundary line. Improvements to pedestrian conditions intend to connect to an existing path at Linderman Creek Apartments. The proposed goals are to extend the current sidewalk along the street, to enhance conditions for bicyclists, and to add 2 bus shelters along the corridor.

In addition, The City of Ithaca Engineering Office is soliciting public comment on the draft design report which is posted in the link below. Written comments can be submitted to Johnathan Licitra at, hand delivered, or mailed to the Engineering Office in City Hall, 108 East Green Street. Comments will be accepted until May 30, 2018.
