ITHACA, N.Y. — Home Dairy Alley, which links the Ithaca Commons from Green Street past Cinemapolis will be closed until the end of the day Wednesday for construction.

The alley will be closed during working hours, from about 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. for storm sewer connection installation. Pedestrian access to the Commons from Green Street/Butterfly Alley will be diverted to Center Ithaca during business hours. Safe passage through the alley will be ensured with steel plating during the hours Center Ithaca is closed, the city said in a news release.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of the day Wednesday, Nov. 21, weather permitting.
