Driving on campus? Avoid East Avenue this week and next.

Drivers heading to or through the Cornell University campus might want to avoid East Avenue through next week. Cornell says the southbound lane will be closed.

According to a bulletin from Cornell, the southbound lane of East Avenue, which runs north-south through the campus, will be closed from 6:30am until 3:30pm daily, April 13 to April 22, for curb repairs. The west side walkway will also be closed from the driveway north of Lincoln Hall to the bus pull-off next to Goldwin Smith Hall.

The repairs come after East Avenue was closed for over a year while the new Klarman Hall was built, partially underground, east of Goldwin Smith Hall. The road reopened a year ago.

Cornell says there will be flaggers to direct traffic, which will be alternating use of the one lane. There’s no official detour, but we suggest taking another route.
