Traffic pattern changes set to begin today, July 8, in the “North Main Street Cultural Connector Project Corridor” have been postponed until the week of July 15th, according to a release from Director of Elmira DPW Andy Avery.
According to Avery, head of Department of Public Works, all Park Place traffic between West Third and West Clinton Streets will be detoured onto North Main Street until early September. Travel on North Main Street between West Third and West Clinton Streets will temporarily operate as 2-way traffic, flowing in both directions during this period.
That section of North Main Street will revert back to one-way travel once construction is complete.
Avery says that variable message signs and detour signage are in place to help drivers travel through the corridor. He also reminds drivers to please drive safely, and allow extra time in the event of construction delays.
