[Bob Joseph/WNBF News[/caption]Contractors tearing down the Collier Street parking garage in downtown Binghamton are moving ahead of schedule.

City officials say State Street between Court and Hawley Streets has been reopened to all traffic. Debris removal, however is keeping Hawley Street closed to westbound traffic between Collier and State Streets.

Organizers of the Chris Thater Memorial Races had said they were working closely with the City and expected the barricades would be down in time for the bicycle and foot races through downtown August 27-28.
