I plan to attend this to represent FLRC and thought other downtown runners might be interested in attending as well.
East Shore Drive pedestrian and bike study - info session Wed 11/15 from 5:45-7:15 pm at Boynton Middle School
The Town of Ithaca Planning Department invites you to attend the East Shore Drive pedestrian and bicycle safety corridor open house with engineering consultants Barton & Loguidice, hosted at the Boynton Middle School cafeteria on Wed November 15th from 5:45 pm to 7:15 pm. The engineers will share information on and display schematic alternative plans for NYS Route 34 between Boynton Middle School and the Ithaca Youth Bureau (James L. Gibbs Dr.).
This project is developing a feasibility study for a capital project to improve the safety for pedestrians and bicyclists and develop designs to link existing multi-use trail infrastructure on approximately 700’ of East Shore Drive (NYS-34) between Boynton Middle School (N. Cayuga Street) and the Ithaca Youth Bureau (James L. Gibbs Dr.) This is a key corridor providing an important link to Stewart Park and the Cayuga Waterfront Trail for walkers, joggers, and cyclists of all ages and from various City of Ithaca neighborhoods, as well as nearby Town of Ithaca and Village of Cayuga Heights neighborhoods. The corridor is also an important and busy transportation route for cars and trucks, including the location of on- and off-ramps for NYS-13 with access to NYS-34.
