Crews will begin laying down asphalt on the Ithaca Commons pedestrian crossings this week.
Last week, crews tore up the Bank Alley portion of the Commons. With demolition work mostly complete, workers will begin laying down asphalt this week.
Vicki Taylor with the Downtown Ithaca Alliance says they expect phase two work to begin by the end of July. That involves utility work, which will be the water, sewer and storm drainage, and all of the telecommunications infrastructure.
“We’re expecting phase 1 to wrap up mid-July,” she said. ”There will be a short break before phase 2 begins, which will start around July 29 and run through the end of November.
