Genesee Riverway Trail


Project Limits: Turning Point Park (Boxart Street) to O’Rourke Bridge 
Date Completed: Fall 2006 
Cost: $6 million (including  Monroe County, NYS, and federal funding)

Project Description: This project won the American Public Works Associations ‘ “Transportation Project of the Year” Award ($2-$10 million category). The trail consists of 3 main parts:
1) the 2,968 ft land-based trail that utilized an old railroad bed to transition from the top of the bank to the river’s edge,
2) a 3,572 ft-long bridge over the Genesee River Turning Basin, and
3) an all-new land-based trail, 3,406 ft in length, through Turning Point Park North and adjacent to the Genesee Marina. 


 The trail connection gracefully laces into the Genesee River, creating a spectacular view for all who use it.
