This afternoon the University's administration is monitoring an approaching winter storm forecast to bring a mixture of rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow to the Ithaca area beginning early in the morning on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 and lasting through Thursday morning, March 13. At this time the type and amount of precipitation being forecast for the Ithaca area are uncertain. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service. Students, faculty and staff are urged to monitor changing conditions throughout the day tomorrow and adjust travel plans accordingly. No change in the University's operating status is expected at this time.
Further updates will be posted to Special Conditions should the weather warrant.
A section of Tower Road in front of Stocking Hall will be reduced to one lane periodically (10 minutes at a time) on Tuesday, March 11 - Wednesday, March 12 to offload materials for the Stocking Hall construction project.
Flaggers will be in place to assist with pedestrians and traffic flow during the lane closure.
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/.
Traffic related questions should be directed to Transportation Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Site preparation for the Klarman Hall project will begin next week. On Monday, July 1, 2013, construction fencing will be installed around the building site and the sidewalk in front of Goldwin Smith Hall on East Avenue will be closed. The closure will include the walkways leading from East Avenue to the Arts Quad between Goldwin Smith and Lincoln Halls.
Detour signs will be in place to assist with pedestrian traffic. A temporary walk will be installed on the South side of Lincoln Hall from the ramp into Lincoln Hall via the walk on the on the east side of Lincoln.
The bus stop at Goldwin Smith Hall will be relocated to the pull off area between Goldwin Smith and Stimson Halls.
These closures will remain in effect until Fall of 2015.
