New Road Projects

It's great that the C of R is now sending us e-mails regarding public meeting for street improvement projects:
It was brought to my attention that the Rochester Cycling Alliance would like to be alerted when public meetings for street improvement projects are announced. I will be emailing you the notifications going forward. Please let me know if you need anything else.

I looked at the Oakwood project, and it seemed to be a residential street, with no important connections to other streets, not really a priority for bike lanes.

The Mt. Hope project seems like it should be a priority for bike lanes, but the notice said that the meeting was for a final design presentation. I think we would have to make A LOT of noise before the city would amend a final design.

  1. I talked to Erik Frisch of the City. The design plan include a 6 foot shoulder on each side of the roadway.

    The project's scope is from South Ave. intersection to Crittenden Blvd. Less than one mile distance.
