Traffic Pattern Changes in Downtown Binghamton
Binghamton public works crews have been busy making lane adjustments on Court Street.
The changes are being made as part of the elimination of several back-in angle parking spaces between State and Water streets.
Mayor Richard David said the work also will include the installation of bike lanes on that section of Court Street.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, David said the driving lanes in both directions will be better aligned when the changes are completed.
The mayor said the removal of the controversial back-in angle spaces was done quickly and made for a seamless transition. He said he had heard no complaints as a result of the switch to parallel parking on the two-block segment of Court Street.
David noted paving work is continuing on the surface lot that is being installed across from the Governmental Plaza. That lot, which is on the site of the old Collier Street parking garage, could open for use in about two weeks.
