Concurrent with the development at Collegetown Terrace, the City of Ithaca is redesigning the intersection of State and Mitchell Street. With 589 additional bedrooms being added to the immediate area, the chosen design for the intersection will remove the traffic island, widen State Street by nine feet, add a bike lane “jug handle,” and traffic signals. The cost of the entire project is being split equally by the City of Ithaca, Cornell University, and Novarr-Mackesey, developers of Collegetown Terrace. Final design plans are below.
