Lake Avenue to Lighthouse Trail and Overlook Project

About the Project

The scope of the project is design and construction of a pedestrian trail and scenic overlook at 4576- 4580 and a portion of 4554 Lake Avenue, to connect with 70 Lighthouse Street.  The project, located along the existing military crest above the Port, will improve scenic views to and from the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse, the Port of Rochester and Lake Ontario. The project was recommended in the City of Rochester’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan, and was included in the Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Port of Rochester.


The project is scheduled for Fall of 2015 and to be completed by the end of 2015.


The project  is funded by the City and by a  grant from the New York State Department of State (NYDOS) with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.
