Tompkins County Kicks Off Route 13 Corridor Study Public Outreach

Thursday, February 13, 2020

The Tompkins County Department of Planning and Sustainability (TCDPS) and the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) announced a corridor study of New York State Route 13 in Tompkins County.

The 9-mile stretch of the corridor under consideration runs from Warren Road (Village of Lansing) to the Village of Dryden’s western boundary, and has 14 total intersections, including five priority intersections that carry significant amounts of traffic. It is a main commuter corridor serving employment centers in the Ithaca area as well as a main freight route for trucks serving local businesses.

By Fall 2020, Tompkins County aims to complete the study, which will provide strategic guidance for future projects and help protect the functionality, capacity and reliability of the roadway while ensuring the safety of its users.

“This portion of State Route 13 is a critical connection between Tompkins and Cortland Counties,” said Katie Borgella, Commissioner of Planning and Sustainability. “With the potential for increased development along this corridor, it is essential that we act now to anticipate those impacts while simultaneously ensuring State Route 13 is in safe, working order for residents, commuters, freight interests, transit riders and cyclists alike.”

With the first phase of the project now underway, Tompkins County is starting outreach to the community.

Please check the County’s website for more information:

Community members and those who use Route 13 are encouraged to take the online survey, which can be found at:
