Correction: The paving is taking place on Spencer Road, not Route 13.

ITHACA, N.Y.—Ithacans will have another bit of construction to avoid from next week through the end of the month.

The section of Spencer Road from Route 13 southbound at The Salvation Army Building to 560 Spencer Road are being given an “overlay of existing road with new asphalt.”

That portion of the road will be closed to thru traffic during the paving process, which will begin on Monday, Sept. 20. It is thought that the work will be done by Sept. 30, though that is subject to change.

There are no detours being created.
