Roadwork on Main Street and Groton Ave. to Begin Soon


Last night at the Cortland Elks Lodge, representatives from the City of Cortland, Cortland County BDC, SUNY Cortland, CCI Companies, Fisher Engineering, GED Vincentes, and Experience Cortland.

Main Street work is expected to begin again in the next few weeks. Ron Rinaldo from CCI Construction told the audience that vault work is expected to begin in the next few weeks for Main Street. Work on the vaults is expected to last all summer. The location of where those vaults are was not specified.

He continued on to note work this summer will include installation of new traffic lights, and street lights, new green-scaping, new sidewalks, new curbing, and finishing with final street paving.

At this time, work for Main Street in the City of Cortland is expected to be completed by Labor Day.

Alongside work on Main Street, Groton Ave. will continue to be reconstructed. Work on Groton Ave. is similar to what was done on Clinton Ave. now almost two years ago. Work is expected to begin as soon as possible, with work hours of 7:30 to 4pm weekdays.

Groton Ave. will be closed between Homer Ave. and Otter Creek Place during work. The closure is expected to last between 4 and 6 weeks. Detour signage has been posted between utilizing Floral Ave. to Madison Street and then towards North Main Street as an alternative route for motorists headed towards Downtown Cortland.

By the time Fall arrives, Groton Ave. will be nearly completed with only a resurfacing being required in the Spring of 2025. The street will have all new underground utilities, sewer, and water lines. Above there will be new sidewalks, curbing, traffic lights, and signage.

The latest updates for roadwork projects within the City of Cortland will be posted on the website, CrownCityRising.com said Experience Cortland Executive Director, Michelle Enright.
