Eastman Trail - Phase I

About the Project

The City of Rochester is preparing the design of a new trail – the Eastman Trail. The proposed Eastman Trail presents a unique opportunity to establish a new trail with significant connections to the larger regional trail system. This trail is the first phase of an east/west connection between the City’s Genesee Riverway Trail at Kings Landing and the State’s proposed Route 390 Trail in the Town of Greece. Eventually the trail could extend further west through the Town of Greece, utilizing the City owned former canal corridor, crossing Long Pond Road and connecting to the Erie Canalway Trail.

The Phase I project will construct a physically separated off road trail between Latona Road in the west and Weiland Road and on-road bike lanes from Weiland Road to Mt. Read Boulevard in the east.

This project, when realized, will support state, regional and citywide trail and alternative transportation efforts. This trail will also begin to establish significant urban/suburban loops: a northern route utilizing the Eastman Trail, Route 390 Trail, Lake Ontario State Parkway Trail and the Genesee Riverway Trail; and a southern route utilizing the Eastman Trail, planned Route 390 Trail, Erie Canalway Trail and the Genesee Riverway Trail.


Additional Information

NYSDOT Route 390 Trailway

The Eastman Trail will connect on its western end to the 390 Trailway being designed and constructed by the NYS Department of Transportation. This project will develop a 2.5 mile long non-motorized, accessible paved trail that will connect the existing Canalway Trail in the south to the existing Route 390 Bike path at Ridge Road (Route 104) in the north. Information regarding the project, including a survey that can be filled out and submitted to the NYSDOT, can be found below


Construction of improvements began in Fall 2021 and is anticipated to be complete in the Summer of 2022.
