BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- $1.2 million of funding will go into the reconstruction of Glenwood Avenue, Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham announced Thursday.

The project includes the removal of trolley tracks and upgraded underground infrastructure. It also includes new pavement for the road and new curbs and sidewalks.

Glenwood Avenue will be closed to traffic between Clinton and Prospect Streets during the construction. Detours will be in place on Clinton, Mygatt and Prospect streets.

The expected date of completion is Dec. 1, 2022.

Mayor Kraham said the reconstruction of Glenwood Avenue is long overdue.

“People that travel on this road have to deal with potholes, you have alligator cracking, during heavy rainstorms it doesn’t drain well, and again was probably the call that we got the most at city hall,” said Kraham.

Chicago Construction Co. Inc., of Endicott, will lead the construction project.

Kraham mentioned he is preparing the budget for 2023 and plans to announce next year’s large-scale infrastructure projects soon.
