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) conducted a corridor study of New York State Route 13 (Route 13) in Tompkins County focused on the 9-mile stretch running along Route 13 from Warren Road (Village of Lansing) to the Village of Dryden’s western boundary. It has 14 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.
In fall 2020, Tompkins County completed the study, which provides strategic guidance for future projects and helps protect the functionality, capacity, and reliability of the roadway while ensuring the safety of its users.
