Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians alike will benefit from recent improvements to the intersection of North Cayuga Street and Cascadilla, where Downtown Ithaca blends into Fall Creek. The intersection has improved curbs with bump-outs to improve pedestrian safety, and all-way stop signs to make turning and crossing easier.
The new stop signs were installed Friday, December 1st, and require vehicles heading north and south on Cayuga Street to stop, as well as vehicles approaching the intersection heading east on Cascadilla Street or west on Cascadilla Avenue.
Ithaca resident and FLCC President Armin Heurich, who took it upon himself to add pedestrian crossing signs at this and other intersections before they were removed by city crews, says he’s “delighted” by the changes. “This intersection redesign will dramatically improve the pedestrian and cyclist experience, making it safer and more civil.”
