Green Street Redevelopment Project- Green Street Lane Shifts

Beginning the week of March 22, 2021, traffic lanes on East Green Street will be shifting to accommodate the Green Street Redevelopment Project. Both lanes of traffic on East Green Street will be shifted approximately 4 feet to the south, and reduced to 10’ wide, between South Cayuga Street and the tuning fork. The lane shift will be in place for the duration of the demolition and subsequent redevelopment on Green Street.

The Green Street Garage will be closed for parking beginning Monday, March 29, 2021, in anticipation of demolition and redevelopment. Garage re-opening is anticipated for late Fall 2021.

As the project progresses, temporary closures of the north lane (garage side) of East Green Street may be necessary to accommodate demolition and redevelopment operations. Pedestrian route detours will be posted in order to ensure continued safe access to Commons businesses and amenities during demolition and construction phases. Due to the nature of this lane shift, the bicycle lane on this portion of East Green Street will be unavailable for the duration of the project. 

Additional information about parking, transportation alternatives, and the Green Street Redevelopment Project can be found on the city's website under "Parking News" here as well as on the Downtown Ithaca Alliance website here. Updates will be posted as they become available.

Questions about this project can be directed to Jennifer Kusznir, the Downtown Ithaca Alliance, or Bruce Adib-Yazdi
