Mt Hope Avenue Improvements – Phase 2

The Mt Hope Avenue Improvements – Phase 2 project will reconstruct Mt Hope Avenue from Rossiter Rd. to the south City line. The project includes street reconstruction, new curbing, sidewalks, water main and services, hydrants, receiving basins, street lighting and tree plantings.

The Final Design Report for the Mount Hope Avenue and East Henrietta Road Improvements, which includes the Phase 2 portion, was completed in March 2009. Since that time, improvements have been made to East Henrietta Road and Mount Hope Avenue north of the Phase 2 portion. In addition, significant improvements, including the construction of a new on-ramp to I-390 from Kendrick Road, have been made in the vicinity of the I-390 interchanges with NYS Routes 15 and 15A (West and East Henrietta Roads). The University of Rochester’s College Town development has also taken shape. Together these changes have affected traffic volumes along the Phase 2 segment of the Mount Hope Avenue corridor. A Reevaluation of traffic volumes was performed and the preferred alternative for the Phase 2 segment of the corridor was made.

Public Participation
