Traffic Signals, Signage, Curb Ramps & Marking Upgrades for Five Downtown Intersections

March 21, 2014 // by Jason Henderson

The City of Ithaca has released a bid request for the replacement of five traffic signals, including the installation of new mast arm traffic signals and appurtenances, new sidewalk curb ramps and connections to existing sidewalks, intersection pavement milling and resurfacing, and new pavement markings. The bidding has officially opened this week, and bids will be accepted until April 9th, then read aloud at the Board of Public Works Meeting (probably the 14th). Once the contract is awarded, and notice is given to proceed, the full scope of work must be completed within 85 days, so the target completion will probably land in this summer, perhaps July or August.

    Too bad it doesn’t look like they’re taking this opportunity to get rid of the curb cut / right turn lane at State and Aurora. Totally unnecessary at this location, very pedestrian unfriendly for a high-volume area, and potentially restrictive when it comes to the much needed replacement of the Trebloc building with a higher-density property.
