ITHACA, N.Y.—The 100 block of Giles Street will be completely closed to through traffic for a period of time Tuesday.

The City of Ithaca announced that construction on a sewer service problem will close a one-way section of the street, from the intersection of Giles and Columbia Streets to the intersection with Giles and Hudson Streets.

The work is expected to last several hours and conclude sometime Tuesday afternoon, but this post will be updated if the work is extended.
