We’re told a coal train heading from Sayre to the Cayuga power plant in north Lansing will be passing through Ithaca’s west end this morning, which will bring traffic across the Cayuga Lake Inlet to a halt.

The roughly mile-long coal train was slated to leave Sayre at about 8:15am, and should head north through Ithaca at some point between 10am and 11am. The transit will take about 15 minutes, and “traffic can be delayed much longer after it passes,” Joe Scaglione III tells us.
