The Rochester Avenue detour is shown.

The suggested detour has been announced for the Rochester Avenue Reconstruction Project. The project is set to close Rochester from Ralston Creek to Windsor Drive beginning the week of Aug. 15, 2022.

The detour bypasses Rochester by using Parsons Avenue, Glendale Road, and Ashwood Drive. 

Motorists are to take note of this construction work and allow extra travel time or seek an alternate route during this time period. 

The closure will facilitate the Rochester Avenue Reconstruction Project, which is set to last from August 2022 through December 2023. Different parts of Rochester from Ralston Creek to 1st Avenue will be totally closed to traffic at different times during the project. To learn more, visit
