Map courtesy of Cornell.New York State Electric & Gas (NYSEG) will be doing natural gas work, so the bridge and adjacent blocks will be closed this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 7am to 6pm. Cornell University suggests that traffic detour on Judd Falls Road and Caldwell Drive to Route 366.

Due to the bridge closure, TCAT says Routes 31, 37, 41, 81, and 83 will be affected, and will use Cradit Farm Drive, Thurston Avenue, and East Avenue to bypass the area. According to a release, "TCAT will drop off/ pick up passengers on Garden Avenue at Tower Road, and Campus Road at East Avenue. Passengers that normally board farther up Tower will need to use Route 82 to transfer to Uris Hall bus stops. Uris Hall Across Street will be the relocated Statler Hall stop, and Uris Hall will be the relocated Sage Hall bus stop." Contact TCAT at 607-277-RIDE if you have any questions about the routing changes.

No through traffic will be allowed on the bridge during the closure hours, but travel will be permitted at night.
