The intersection of Eddy Street and Buffalo Street will be closed for two days to allow for delivery of construction materials, according to the City of Ithaca’s Department of Public Works.
A large crane will be delivering materials to the construction site at 327 Eddy Street, which will require the road closures. The intersection will be fully closed to vehicular traffic, which will affect traffic between Downtown Ithaca and Collegetown or the Cornell campus. The closure will be in effect both Wednesday, April 27th and Thursday, April 28th.
372 Eddy Street is the site of a large apartment building project developed by Steve Fontana, replacing the Club Sudz laundromat and Pixel Lounge bar on two adjacent plots between Eddy Street and the lower block of Dryden Road.
City officials say detours will be posted to route traffic around the affected area. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the closure.
This week, South Aurora Street (Route 96B) is closed on Ithaca’s South Hill, and Hector Street (Route 79) is reduced to one lane on Ithaca’s West Hill, as well.
