Waring Road Improvements

About the Project

  Location map

Waring Road is located at the northern limit of the City of Rochester’s Southeast Quadrant near the Irondequoit border.  The street reconstruction project extends the entire length of Waring Road from the Culver Road/Woodman Park intersection on the southern end to the Norton Street intersection on the northern end.  The initiation of the Waring Road reconstruction project began in late 2011 with design phases that extended through early summer of 2014 and ended with the completion of 90% design plans when federal construction funds were reallocated leaving no choice but to shelve the project until funding became available again.  In 2019, the City of Rochester received notification from the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) that New York State funds were appropriated for the reevaluation and completion of the right of way acquisitions, design and construction phases.  Clark Patterson Lee (CPL), the original design firm, was brought back on board to complete the project.
