Traffic Control Gates Installed on East Ave

The Klarman Hall construction project necessitated the closing of the southbound lane of East Avenue until Spring of 2015. The northbound lane of East Avenue is designated for use by buses, bicycles and emergency vehicles only. All other through traffic has been detoured using West Ave.

To stop general traffic from traveling through the limited access portion of East Avenue, traffic control gates have been installed at both ends of the lane. Only bicycles, emergency vehicles, and vehicles equipped with a transponder to raise the gate will be able to travel the roadway.

If you have any questions regarding the traffic-control gates, please contact Transportation Services at transportation@cornell.edu.

East Avenue Road Closure - Klarman Hall Project - January 8, 2014 until April 19, 2015

The construction of Klarman Hall will necessitate the closing of the southbound lane of East Avenue to all traffic from January 8, 2014 until April 19, 2015. The northbound lane of East Avenue will be available for buses, bicycles, and emergency vehicles only, with traffic alternating southbound and northbound. All other through traffic will be detoured using West Avenue (see diagrams below).

Access will be maintained to Lincoln Hall from the north and to the AD White House from the south. Project flag persons will monitor the detour points at the start of the lane closure to assist in the transition to the new traffic patterns. Cornell Police will enforce the bus- and bike-only traffic rule on the restricted portion of East Avenue.

If you have questions about the Klarman Hall project contact Gary Wilhelm at 607 254-8022 or visit the website at http://as.cornell.edu/klarman-hall/.

Traffic related questions should be directed to Transportation Services at transportation@cornell.edu.
