The start of the 2024 construction season is almost here and with that, the City of Cortland, SUNY Cortland, the Cortland County Business Development Corporation, and the Cortland County Convention and Visitors Bureau will be holding a public information session next week on March 20th at 6pm at the Cortland Elks Lodge.

The meeting will provide the public with an update on the planned construction work in the City of Cortland along with the expected impacts, detour routes, and alternative plans.

Construction work for the 2024 year includes: Completion of Main Street, Groton Ave, reconstruction of the intersection of Broadway Ave, Pashley Dr, and Neubig Road, and the Groton Ave. public parking lot.

Work on Main Street in the City of Cortland is the continuation of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative. Crews will work on replacing all current sidewalks and remaining curbing on both the east and west sides of the street. Construction work will also include repairing additional utility vaults, converting the street to two-way traffic, installing new street lighting and traffic control equipment.

Groton Ave. work will resume with replacement of water mains below the surface and the storm sewer system. Crews will also replace sanitary sewer lines. Work will include new sidewalks and curbing.

One of the busiest parking lots in Downtown Cortland will also be reconstructed. Work is part of the overall Groton Ave. improvement. The City says work will allow for more parking in the lots than what is currently available.

SUNY Cortland and the City of Cortland are collaborating on the redevelopment of the intersection at Broadway Ave, Pashley Dr, and Neubig Road at the bottom of the hill of the Cortland Campus. Details currently on the project are limited, but the intersection is planned for be closed for a period this summer. Work will not begin until after students leave for summer break.

The meeting will include representatives from the City of Cortland Public Works Department, who will provide information on upcoming water line replacement projects and tentative road work plans.
