The Ithaca community can expect a detour around the East Clinton Street Bridge beginning Monday as construction on it resumes, according to a press release from the City of Ithaca.
During the construction, one lane will remain open, Addisu Gebre, bridge systems engineer and project manager, said. Traffic traveling west will be detoured to follow North Aurora Street to West Seneca Street, and then to Albany Street for Route 96B. Eastbound traffic will use the bridge.
Gebre said the construction is a continuation of the construction that began last year.
“We will be working on the street and some of the retaining walls, sidewalks, pavement work,” Gebre said.
The press release said pedestrians will still have access to the project area during construction. Pedestrians will be able to use existing or newly constructed sidewalks in the area. The press release also said parking will not be allowed in the construction area.
Construction is expected to be completed by July 15.
