The City of Rochester is hosting two public information sessions on the upcoming Downtown Sidewalk Experience Enhancement Project. This project, expected to occur in 2022, will replace the deteriorated brick inlay pattern sidewalks along Broadway from 2 Street North to 4 Street South, and also along Historic 3rd Street SW. Information about the project is available on the project website.

“This project is focused on improving the experience for those moving around our downtown. The sidewalks will be safer and the current blight of the deteriorated and patched brick will be eliminated. This is one of those important infrastructure projects that will have benefits for residents, visitors, and downtown businesses,” shares Cindy Steinhauser, Deputy City Administrator – Development Services & Infrastructure.

Patrick Seeb, Executive Director of Destination Medical Center Economic Development Agency highlights, “This project is a vital infrastructure improvement for our downtown. We listened to our community and made this project a priority. We are looking forward to working with local businesses and stakeholders on a Business Forward strategy to minimize the impact of construction on their operations.”
