Construction Notice- Hector Street Complete Streets Project

Construction Notice- Hector Street Complete Streets Project

The City of Ithaca will strive to provide information in a timely manner to all of our constituencies.

PROJECT NAME:    Hector Street Complete Streets Project

PROJECT START DATE:   Monday, March 16, 2020

PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND GOAL:
New and replacement sidewalks will be constructed along Hector St Street between Floral Avenue and 500 feet west of Warren Place.  In addition to the sidewalks, the City of Ithaca’s contractor, Bothar Construction, will be repairing or installing associated retaining walls, curbing, and drainage improvements.  City crews will conduct concurrent construction improvements to the water main and stormwater infrastructure in the corridor. 

Please see the city’s Current City Projects page for detailed maps of scheduled work & detours

LOCAL IMPACTS:
Beginning on March 16th, Hector St. will be reduced to one lane and flaggers will provide alternating traffic flow in both directions. People driving or biking should expect delays.

Beginning April 1st, Hector Street will be closed to thru traffic. A detour will be posted using Cliff Street (Rt 96), Hayts Road, and Halseyville Road. Vehicular access within the road closure will be provided for people who live along Hector Street and the neighborhood off North Taylor Place, and for emergency responders. People walking or biking through the closure should use caution and obey directions from construction crews. People driving should use the detour or alternative routes and should expect additional travel times, especially in getting through the West End. The City encourages commuters to flex travel times, ride-share and take public transport whenever possible. 

SCHEDULED COMPLETION DATE:   October 1, 2020

PLEASE NOTE:  Construction, by nature, is subject to constant change, inclement weather, and unexpected findings.
