The closure of East Avenue due to the construction of Klarman Hall has brought about an assortment of traffic and transportation adjustments that will affect members of the Cornell and Ithaca communities alike for the next-year-and-a-half.
Until April 19, 2015, the southbound lane of East Avenue will be closed to all traffic while the northbound lane will only remain open to alternating bus, bicycle and emergency vehicle traffic. General traffic will be redirected with West Avenue serving as a detour, according to a University press release.
The lane closure has also led to increased cooperation between the Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit, the University’s Trasportation Services and the University in order to alleviate the effect of construction on bus operations, according to Nancy Oltz, TCAT’s operations manager.
