The continuation of the Groton Avenue Public Improvement project inches closer.

Weather pending, the project on Groton Avenue could start near the end of this month or early spring. The project includes the replacement of water mains, storm sewer systems and sanitary sewer line replacements, and installing new sidewalks and curbing. 

The project as a whole lays the groundwork for reconstruction to create more parking in the Groton Avenue parking lot.

Crews have begun placing detour signs on nearby streets in preparation for the start of the project. Detour plans have yet to be determined.

City of Cortland officials – along with representatives from SUNY Cortland, Cortland County Business Development Corporation and the Cortland County Convention and Visitors Bureau – are hosting a public information session at 6 p.m. Wednesday (March 20) at the Cortland Elks Lodge on Groton Avenue.

Further details on the Groton Avenue project, along with the continuation of the city’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative project, will be provided at the session.

Community members can attend the session in person or virtually. A Zoom link for the session can be found here.
