2-way traffic to return downtown

2-way traffic to return downtown

A big change is starting for downtown Rochester traffic this fall, and the construction begins this week: St. Paul Street and North Clinton Avenue are beginning the switch from one-way to two-way traffic.

The change is being pushed by development of the new Mortimer Street Transit Center. It will be a "must have" for buses to get in and out of the new downtown station.

The first stage is to change the two north-south corridors between Main Street and Cumberland Street at the Inner Loop,  at a cost of just over $2 million. That's supposed to be finished by late October. They'll reset the curve and repave the streets at the same time.

Next year they'll tackle North Clinton south of Main Street and convert East Broad Street back to two-way traffic. South Avenue will probably have to stay one-way for the time being because of the entrances to the South Avenue Garage and the I-490 on-ramps.
