On the day of a Streets Alive! event, residents along the route need to remove their cars from the closed streets for the duration of Streets Alive! to minimize danger to people who are expecting no cars along the route. Parking is available on nearby streets, and we warmly invite you to participate in Streets Alive! Ithaca.
On Sunday, April 30th, 2017, N Cayuga St will be closed from East Shore Dr to Court St, and W Court St will be closed from Cayuga St to Plain St (see map here). Cars will be able to cross N. Cayuga St. at the lighted intersection with Tompkins Street only. With setup and cleanup for the event, residents will need to move their cars by 12 PM (noon) on the day of the event and will be able to return their cars after the event is over. Any cars remaining on the street during the event are subject to tow. People with special needs should contact Bike Walk Tompkins at 607-301-3181 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate alternatives. Residents who do not have any other alternative but to cross the route to access their homes can do so by requesting the assistance of our volunteers.
Vehicle traffic must seek alternate routes and cannot cross the closed streets for the safety of Streets Alive! participants. All intersections will be managed by trained Streets Alive! Intersection Volunteers. Cars will be able to cross N. Cayuga St. at the lighted intersection with Tompkins St. Please follow the signals of the police officer.
In the case of an emergency, residents with cars parked in off-street driveways will be able to drive their car to the nearest cross street. Before moving your vehicle, PLEASE ALERT a Streets Alive! volunteer (in a bright t-shirt) to ensure safety for the participants on the street. Emergency vehicles will have access to all households along the route.
We look forward to seeing our neighbors at the 2017 Streets Alive! Ithaca and thank you very much for your cooperation.
