Inner Loop East - Support



Rochester Expresses its Enthusiastic Support

The idea of filling in the Inner Loop has been discussed in the community for over two decades. As the facility has deteriorated over the years, support from surrounding neighborhoods, business owners, developers, and real estate firms has grown substantially. Transforming the sunken Inner Loop from a barrier to a beautiful, high quality street will benefit the entire community.
