Point at map to zoom in.The closure is from Forest Home Drive at the north end of the one-lane bridge over Fall Creek, up the hill to Cradit Farm Road on Cornell's north campus. Drivers may detour up Warren Road to Hanshaw Road, or through the Cornell Plantations and over the Thurston Avenue bridge.

Hanshaw Road was closed to westbound traffic for most of the spring and summer, but even though the project isn't finished, the westbound lane of Hanshaw Road has reopened to traffic.

The portion of Pleasant Grove Road along Cornell's A Lot parking lot and in the Village of Cayuga Heights is not affected, but drivers heading to A Lot from the East Hill area, Varna, and Cornell's east campus will need to find another route. East Avenue through the Cornell campus is also closed for over a year for the construction of Klarman Hall.

The road serves as a thoroughfare from the Northeast area and the villages of Cayuga Heights and Lansing to the East Hill area in the Town of Ithaca and Collegetown.
