Residents voice concerns on Hanshaw Road project

More than 50 people turned out for a public hearing on a project to repair more than a mile of Hanshaw Road in Tompkins County.

The plans call for one-way traffic eastbound on Hanshaw road, a traffic pattern that will be in effect day and night.

Local resident John DeRosa says while he has some short-term concerns, he believes the project will benefit the community in the long run.

“The road has been in need of repair for some time,” DeRosa said. “I think it will really facilitate people being able to use Hanshaw Road as a pedestrian road.”

Tompkins County will repair the road between Pleasant Grove and Sapsucker Woods roads in the town of Ithaca. Roughly 95 percent of the project is funded through state and federal funds.

Construction is set to begin Monday.
