ITHACA, N.Y.—Ongoing utility work on College Avenue will impact streets in Collegetown May 2 to 4, 2022.

The street reconstruction project will close Catherine Street to both pedestrians and vehicles from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 3 and 4, and the downhill lane of Mitchell Street will be closed to vehicles for approximately half the day on both of those dates. Parking will be fully unavailable within the work zones.

It is advised to avoid the area as delays are expected, and vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists will be redirected by flaggers, though on detours will be posted.
