Expect delays as city crews repair East State St and Stewart Ave intersection

City of Ithaca officials say traffic will be maintained in both directions on East State Street, but blocked southbound on Stewart Avenue, while crews begin “intersection improvements” this Tuesday on the East Hill junction.

While one lane in each direction will be open on State Street, the City encourages westbound drivers to detour around the work by turning right onto Stewart Avenue and then left onto Seneca Street. Expect delays on State Street and at the bottom of the Seneca Street hill.

Stewart Avenue will be closed for southbound traffic from Seneca Street to State Street, and drivers can turn left or right onto Buffalo Street, or right onto Seneca Street, to get where they’re going.

The City of Ithaca says work should be done by the end of the day Tuesday.
