About the Project

The Center City Two-Way Conversion Project will implement the two-way conversion of North Clinton Avenue from Cumberland Street to Main Street and St. Paul Street from Cumberland Street to Main Street.

The possibility of converting North/South Clinton Avenues and St. Paul Street/South Avenue through downtown Rochester from their current one-way traffic pattern to a two-way pattern has been the subject of a study since fall 2011.   

To date, the study has produced an Existing Conditions Analysis Report, a Future Conditions Forecast Report and a Feasibility Assessment Report.  Links to these reports are found below. 

The Center City Two-Way Conversion Project will implement the two-way conversion north of and including Main Street using the report recommendations.   

The design agreement will be fully funded by the City. RGRTA has applied for federal funds to partially fund the construction.  In anticipation of receiving these funds, the construction documents will follow Locally Administered Federal Aid Projects guidelines.
