Two-year Hanshaw Road reconstruction project faces new delays

The two year rebuild of a portion of Hanshaw Road is now going to take a little longer than first expected.

Crews have been repairing a one-mile stretch of the roadway, from Pleasant Grove Road in the village of Cayuga Heights, all the way to Sapsucker Woods Road in the town of Ithaca, since last year.

Officials with TCAT say they’ve been notified that there could be an eight-week delay on the project, and they’ve decided to re-route buses that take the stretch of roadway “indefinitely.”

“As the year‑long Hanshaw Road construction project has been now delayed  indefinitely, Routes 31, 37, 41 and 74 will retain the same routing that has been in place over the past year,” TCAT says on its website.

Detours remain in place, as traffic is only permitted heading out of Ithaca. The detour has led to increased traffic on nearby roads, including Route 13.
