About the Project
This project will improve the existing Turning Point trailhead and parking lot. The existing asphalt parking lot has approximately 30 spaces and will be expanded to accommodate approximately 48 spaces. The new trailhead will include a new gate at the end of Boxart Street.
The new parking lot addition will incorporate varieties of porous pavements, additional rain gardens, structural soils and other green initiatives that have not been used in the city. This would make the Turning Point trailhead a singular example of the latest green initiatives in the City of Rochester. Visitors will be able to see a variety of green street technologies in use and compare and contrast the different details. Informational signs will provide visitors with information to learn how green streets can be built and how to incorporate some of these ideas in their own homes and other municipalities.
The project will be constructed in July through Oct. 2014.
A public meeting will be held July 15, 2014 to present the construction schedule and implementation details
