Center City Two-Way Conversion Project


New Traffic Patterns

Two major thoroughfares that run through the heart of Downtown were changed from one-way to two-way traffic in the fall of 2014. 

  • Saint Paul Street — between Cumberland Street and Main Street
  • North Clinton Avenue — between Cumberland Street and Main Street

This is the completion of the first phase of the City’s Two-Way Conversion Project to implement the conversion of these portions of St. Paul Street and North Clinton Avenue to two-way streets. These streets have been one-way since the 1960s. This phase was constructed in conjunction with the opening of the RTS Transit Center on Mortimer Street. 


About the Project

The Center City Two-Way Conversion Project implemented the two-way conversion of North Clinton Avenue from Cumberland Street to Main Street and St. Paul Street from Cumberland Street to Main Street.

The possibility of converting North/South Clinton Avenues and St. Paul Street/South Avenue through Downtown Rochester from their current one-way traffic pattern to a two-way pattern has been the subject of a study since fall 2011.
