Ithaca DPW will detour Route 79 on East Hill next Tuesday through Thursday

February 11, 2013

The City of Ithaca Department of Public Works says the 900 block of East State Street, also known as Route 79, will be closed to through traffic from 7am on Tuesday, February 19th until about 3:30pm on Thursday, February 21st, from the intersection with Valentine Place to the intersection with Mitchell Street. 

Through traffic will be detoured along Pine Tree Road, Maple Avenue, Ithaca Road, and Mitchell Street, while DPW Water & Sewer crews install new water service for the Collegetown Terrace apartment projects. 

Eastbound traffic heading uphill out of the City of Ithaca will be detoured left onto Mitchell Street and Ithaca Road, turn right onto Maple Avenue, turn right onto Pine Tree Road, and then return to Route 79, which is Slaterville Road in the Town of Ithaca, turning left to proceed east.

Westbound traffic heading into the City will turn right onto Pine Tree Road, then turn left onto Maple, and bear left onto Ithaca Road and then Mitchell Street before merging into East State Street below the work zone.
