Major Downtown Binghamton Project May Cause Traffic Snags

City of Binghamton officials have announced a $940,000 State Street Improvement Project which will change much of the landscape on State Street from Susquehanna Street to Hawley Street. As part of the State Street Improvement Project, the city will lay new pavement and striping, add bike lanes and pedestrian crossings, put in new landscaping, make curbs ADA-compliant, and install new traffic signals at State Street and Hawley Street.

Starting on Thursday, August 3rd at 7am, State Street will be closed between Stuart Street and Hawley Streets for the demolition of the old pedestrian bridge that connects 20 Hawley Street and City Hall. Northbound State Street traffic will be detoured to Susquehanna and Exchange Streets. Southbound State Street traffic will be detoured to Hawley and Washington Streets.

The demolition of the pedestrian bridge is expected to be completed by August 26th, but while construction is taking place, sidewalks and parking spots will be closed. Drivers are asked to follow detour signs and reduce speeds in work areas.

The rest of the State Street Improvement Project is expected to begin in late fall.
