BINGHAMTON, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – Yesterday, March 20th, Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham announced that work will resume this week on the $1.2 million Glenwood Avenue reconstruction project.

The project will reconstruct Glenwood Avenue between Clinton and Prospect streets. It includes the removal of trolley tracks and subbase, new pavement, new curbs and sidewalks, and upgrades to underground water and sewer systems.

During construction, Glenwood Avenue will be closed from Downs Avenue to Clinton Street.

Work is expected to be completed by June.
