As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable service to all our customers, New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG), in conjunction with our parent company – AVANGRID, is updating the delivery system in our service areas. These upgrades comply with new electric transmission reliability requirements. While making investments to meet the community’s growing energy demands, we are working closely with our neighbors to ensure that all improvements are performed with minimal disruption to the environment and the communities we serve.
NYSEG is facilitating a joint project with the City of Ithaca to relocate overhead electric and telecom facilities underground to enable a City betterment initiative along College Avenue. The City of Ithaca is currently considering long-term development plans to construct several new mixed-use commercial retail and residential buildings in the area along with corresponding streetscaping efforts.
In coordination with The City of Ithaca, NYSEG is upgrading the electric infrastructure along College Avenue as part of a City street reconstruction project. The proposed construction will occur between Dryden Road (north) and Mitchell Street (south). Both residential and commercial customers (approximately 30) will be impacted by the construction and in a position to benefit from the project in the long-term: Once the construction relocation activities are completed, the City of Ithaca has plans to implement a streetscaping improvement project in preparation for new development activities.
