Asphalt Update – June 12th & 13th

The demolition and removal of the concrete planters has started on Bank Alley and will continue through next week. The excavators being used for the demolition can be loud, and you may feel some vibrations in your building. Please contact us if you have any concerns.

On Wednesday, 6/12 and Thursday, 6/13, weather permitting, the two north-south pedestrian crossings will be paved with asphalt. One is located between Benjamin Peters and Race Office Supply and the other one between Body Gear and Jillian’s Drawers. The asphalt will generate petrochemical odors, similar to when it is put down on driveways, parking lots or roadways.

The construction fence that juts out on the south side in front of Center Ithaca will be moved in to be aligned with the rest of the construction fence.  Asphalt will be first placed to create a base to secure the fence.

Please be aware that because it is a construction site, at any time pedestrians may be rerouted to one side of the Commons or asked to wait while construction vehicle(s) move through a pedestrian crossing.  These disruptions will be temporary and should only last a few minutes.  We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this important work.
