Rochester Avenue lane shifts start March 24, 2022 ahead of Reconstruction Project

Effective immediately, travel on Rochester Avenue, from First Avenue to Montrose Avenue, will be impacted. It is anticipated normal traffic will resume by mid-June.

Lanes of traffic will be shifted at various locations during daylight hours.

This traffic pattern change will accommodate the conversion of overhead electrical lines to underground for an upcoming road construction project. This work precedes the official beginning of the Rochester Avenue Reconstruction Project, set to begin in June. Learn more at
