State Route 13 Corridor Study 2020



About the Project

The Tompkins County Department of Planning and Sustainability (TCDPS) and the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) are conducting a corridor study of New York State Route 13 (Route 13) in Tompkins County. The 9-mile stretch of the corridor under consideration runs along Route13 from Warren Road (Village of Lansing) to the Village of Dryden’s western boundary, and has fourteen total intersections, including five priority intersections that carry significant amounts of traffic. It is a primary commuter travel 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.
