Ithaca Commons renovation complete

The Ithaca Commons pedestrian mall is open again after a facelift that took more than two years to complete.

A two-day festival marked the occasion last weekend, and residents and tourists joined Commons business owners to celebrate. WSKG’s Solvejg Wastvedt sent this audio postcard, beginning with the ceremonial ribbon-cutting.

Solvejg Wastvedt grew up in western Pennsylvania and graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Over the summer, she served in Los Angeles as an intern on NPR's National Desk. Plus, before coming to Upstate New York, Solvejg worked at the Minneapolis community radio station KFAI. When she isn't reporting the news, Solvejg enjoys running and exploring hiking trails.
