SUNY Cortland’s Campus Intersection Improvement Project is moving along following the first week of phase two construction.

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

The project is currently under construction at Broadway Avenue, Neubig Road and Pashley Drive in the city of Cortland. The goal of the project is to improve walking and vehicle safety in the specific area. It is currently implementing a full closure to vehicular traffic, while adversely impacting pedestrian traffic.

People looking to access the upper campus of SUNY Cortland should use Court Street to West Court Street, or access it at Prospect Terrace from Tompkins Street.

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.
