Downtown Water Front SE

As part of the approved 2021 Downtown Waterfront S.E. Small Area Plan, a series of public realm improvement projects was identified to create a cohesive, connected, and activated redevelopment district. These public realm improvement projects not only provide improved access and connections to the district, but they also elevate the overall experience, enhance the natural systems on a degraded site, and provide confidence that the Destination Medical Center (DMC) and the City of Rochester are committed to redeveloping the site and improving adjacent neighborhoods.

This project will look to prepare a preferred bridge concept including type, size, available transportation modes, and location. The concept will show span arrangement, roadway cross-section, aesthetics, and any other information necessary for guiding the future detailed design of the bridge. The preferred design will lead to a preliminary cost estimate to be utilized for funding applications.
