Center City Two-Way Conversion Phase II Project

Center City Two-Way Conversion Phase II Project

  • Broad Street: South Avenue - S. Clinton Avenue
  • S. Clinton Avenue & Woodbury Blvd. - Broad Street

Portions of South Clinton Avenue and East Broad Street in Downtown Rochester have been to two-way traffic.

About the Project

The City has received a Transportation Community and System Preservation grant from the Federal Highway Administration has been made available to convert Broad Street to two way traffic between Stone Street and S. Clinton Avenue. The changes to the roadway necessary for this conversion will be from S. Clinton Avenue to South Avenue. This conversion was originally planned to be done as part of the Midtown Project and the traffic analysis for the conversion was included in the approved Midtown Redevelopment Final Design Report.

The City also has Federal Aid available for a preventive maintenance project on S. Clinton Avenue from I-490 to Broad Street.  Except as necessary for the Broad Street conversion, curblines will remain the same. This project was included in a prior Initial Project Proposal when it was part of a larger preventive maintenance project.

In addition to the usual preventive maintenance activities on S. Clinton Avenue, we have budgeted City funds to replace the existing lighting along this portion of S. Clinton Avenue.

The project will be funded with federal aid and the construction documents will follow Locally Administered Federal Aid Projects guidelines.

Anticipated Schedule

Construction Begins April 2017
