A recent study of converting two of downtown’s primary arteries to two-way traffic will be discussed at an information session Thursday, officials from the city of Rochester announced.
The feasibility of North and South Clinton avenues and St. Paul Street and South Avenue becoming two-way streets is the topic from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Kate Gleason Auditorium at the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County on South Avenue.
The goal of converting the streets from one-way to two-way is to make downtown more visitor-friendly, to enhance the ability to walk downtown streets and to make neighborhoods more accessible, city officials said.
Preliminary findings have been developed from the study, officials said.
Existing conditions for drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users were analyzed in the study, they said. Future conditions were predicted based on known development and anticipated growth.
Copies of the draft two-way conversion feasibility assessment report are available at the Central Library or on the city website at www.cityofrochester.gov.
