Today marks the first day that drivers are not allowed to turn onto Otter Creek Place from Groton Avenue.
Road workers were spotted at the end of last week putting up a solar sign at the intersection between Otter Creek Pl and Groton Ave.
According to the City of Cortland Police Department, the new rule went into effect this morning (Monday, March 9th). However, residents of Otter Creek Pl will still be allowed to travel both directions out of their driveways.
With Otter Creek being a small and narrow road, where traffic used to flow both ways for years; cars were forced to drive down the sidewalk due to the lack of space. This endangered pedestrians walking on the side of the road.
Some vehicles were seen by local resident turning into Otter Creek from Groton Avenue this morning. (The video was blurred to hide license plate information).
