Some TCAT routes on Snow Detour due to snowy road conditions

Today’s winter storm won’t drop a huge amount of snow on the Ithaca area, but it’s dropping snow fast enough, for a few hours, that road conditions have deteriorated quickly. TCAT says Routes 11, 14, and 51 are on Snow Detour as a result.

Route 11 on Ithaca’s south hill will not be serving Hudson Street between Grandview and South Aurora Street, and will reroute onto South Aurora Street, or Route 96B.

Route 14 on west hill won’t serve Chestnut Street and Campbell Ave. It will detour onto Elm St, Hector St, and Trumansburg Road.

Route 51 on east hill will be skipping the loop serving Eastern Heights Drive, Skyvue Road, and Snyder Hill Road.

TCAT announced this morning that Schuyler County Transit Route 6 with connections to TCAT routes won’t be operating today.

Most schools in the Ithaca area are closed, and some organizations closed for the day or are closing early.
