Route 13 southbound reduced to one lane due to water main breaks in two spots

October 21, 2015 by Rachel Cera

The City of Ithaca says Route 13 southbound is reduced to one lane due to two separate water main breaks in Ithaca's southwest. The Water & Sewer Division says repairs could take until early evening in each spot.

According to the emergency lane closing alerts from the City, one lane is closed south of the intersection of South Meadow Street and Elmira Road, near Denny's and Honda of Ithaca, and again on Elmira Road near Arby's and Smart Yogurt.

We suggest avoiding the affected portion of Route 13 by taking West State Street to Route 13A (Floral Ave) in the west end.

For those driving through Route 13, the City Department of Public Works urges motorists to drive carefully. "Please slow down and drive responsibly."
