Current Crime Alert

Crime Alert - Forcible Touching reported on 200 Block of Williams Street, 12:30 a.m. Feb. 28, 2015

The Cornell University Police Department is investigating a report of a forcible touching that occurred on the 200 block of Williams Street in the City of Ithaca. The victim reports that the crime occurred at 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015. Ithaca Police are assisting in the investigation. Cornell Police is increasing patrols to increase the safety of the community, and the Blue Light Escort service will remain available.
According to the female victim, a college-aged white male approached her on the sidewalk just south of Eddy Gate, said something, then pushed her against a nearby wall. He attempted to kiss her face, which she avoided, and then he put his hand down the front waistband of her pants. The female was able to disengage by yelling, slapping and pushing the male away. The female was able to rejoin a friend and the male left the area heading east on Williams Street.
The male perpetrator was described as a white male, college-aged, 5 foot 9 inches to 5 foot 10 inches, medium build, medium length shaggy blond hair, no facial hair. He was wearing no jacket, a blue and white striped button-down long sleeved shirt and khaki pants. She believed the male perpetrator to be very intoxicated.
The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information should contact the Cornell Police at 607-255-1111.

Lower Cascadilla Gorge Trail Closed for the Winter

The Cascadilla Gorge Trail from Downtown (Linn Street) to College Avenue is now closed for the Winter. The trail is closed due to the potential for snow, ice, and falling rock that create unsafe conditions.

This section of trail will re-open in the spring when conditions allow.

Traffic Control Gates Installed on East Ave

The Klarman Hall construction project necessitated the closing of the southbound lane of East Avenue until Spring of 2015. The northbound lane of East Avenue is designated for use by buses, bicycles and emergency vehicles only. All other through traffic has been detoured using West Ave.

To stop general traffic from traveling through the limited access portion of East Avenue, traffic control gates have been installed at both ends of the lane. Only bicycles, emergency vehicles, and vehicles equipped with a transponder to raise the gate will be able to travel the roadway.

If you have any questions regarding the traffic-control gates, please contact Transportation Services at transportation@cornell.edu.

East Avenue Road Closure - Klarman Hall Project - January 8, 2014 until April 19, 2015

The construction of Klarman Hall will necessitate the closing of the southbound lane of East Avenue to all traffic from January 8, 2014 until April 19, 2015. The northbound lane of East Avenue will be available for buses, bicycles, and emergency vehicles only, with traffic alternating southbound and northbound. All other through traffic will be detoured using West Avenue (see diagrams below).

Access will be maintained to Lincoln Hall from the north and to the AD White House from the south. Project flag persons will monitor the detour points at the start of the lane closure to assist in the transition to the new traffic patterns. Cornell Police will enforce the bus- and bike-only traffic rule on the restricted portion of East Avenue.

If you have questions about the Klarman Hall project contact Gary Wilhelm at 607 254-8022 or visit the website at http://as.cornell.edu/klarman-hall/.
