Center City Two-Way Conversion Project
- North Clinton Avenue: Cumberland Street – Main Street
- St. Paul Street: Cumberland Street – Main Street
About the Project
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 started in the fall of 2011 ( http://www.cityofrochester.gov/twowayconversion ).
To date the study has produced an Existing Conditions Analysis Report, a Future Conditions Forecast Report and a Draft Feasibility Assessment Report. Links to these reports are found below.
While the Final Feasibility Assessment Report is not yet complete, the Draft Feasibility Assessment Report shows the conversion of the streets is possible.
The Center City Two-Way Conversion Project will implement the two-way conversion north of and including Main Street using the Draft Report’s recommendations. If there are revisions in the Final Feasibility Assessment Report which modify the design’s scope of work the City will review these with the Consultant and implement any additional services that may be needed.
The design agreement will be fully funded by the City. The City has applied for Federal funds to partially fund the construction. In anticipation of receiving these funds, the Construction documents will follow Locally Administered Federal Aid Projects guidelines.
