SUNY Cortland will soon enter the next phase of its ongoing Campus Intersection Improvement Project.

According to an update provided by Crown City Rising, phase two of the $1.7 million project will begin on May 13 and continue through July 5. The project as a whole is tentatively set to conclude in the fall.

The project is currently under construction at Broadway Avenue, Neubig Road and Pashley Drive in the city of Cortland. The goal of the project, according to Crown City Rising, is to improve walking and vehicle safety in the specific area.

Once the project is complete, the area will include:

  • A raised intersection with new traffic and pedestrian signaling.
  • Added turning lanes on Neubig Road and Pashley Drive.
  • A second bus stop and extended sidewalk across from Whitaker Hall.
  • Increased signage to mark the entrance to campus.
  • And more.

The second phase of the project will lead to a “full closure” to vehicular traffic, while “adversely impacting” pedestrian traffic.

Noted in Crown City Rising’s update, “We understand how disruptive this closure will be to campus programming and the community during this period. Careful consideration was put into reducing disruption to the greatest extent possible.”
