Geneva, Macedon among recipients of millions to enhance infrastructure

  • Staff Report 

Governor Kathy Hochul has announced projects aimed at enhancing safety and mobility across the Finger Lakes Region, representing a significant $46.9 million investment in infrastructure. These initiatives encompass the rehabilitation of bridges, restoration of road surfaces, intersection reconfigurations, and other improvements along heavily trafficked roads, including Interstate 390.

One notable project includes the ongoing $26.7 million pavement rehabilitation along Interstate 390 between exits 10 and 8 in Livingston County. This initiative, spanning multiple years, aims to improve road conditions along one of New York State’s vital highways, connecting the Finger Lakes Region from I-86 in the south to the Lake Ontario State Parkway in the north.

Other investments include bridge rehabilitation projects, pavement restorations, and intersection enhancements along various routes throughout the region. These endeavors seek to increase roadway resilience, reduce congestion, and enhance accessibility for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians, fostering continued growth and prosperity in the Finger Lakes area.

Here’s how the investments breakdown locally:

  • $6 million to rehabilitate bridges carrying I-390 over Commerce Drive in the Town of North Dansville, Livingston County. The project will replace the bridge decks, install new girders and make structural repairs to extend the service life of these structures, ensuring that visitors and residents can utilize all that the Dansville community has to offer, including nearby Stony Brook State Park. The project is slated for completion in fall 2024.
  • $4.8 million to continue last year’s work rehabilitating pavement along State Route 31 from the Monroe County-Wayne County line to the Hamlet of Macedon, Wayne County. Additional work includes extending the existing culvert near Wayneport Road, enhancing sidewalk and curb ramps along the roadway throughout the project footprint, and deliver signal upgrades throughout the corridor. Major work is slated for completion in fall 2024.
  • $3.6 million to upgrade the interchange between State Route 386 (Scottsville Road) and I-390 in the Town of Chili, Monroe County. Work includes realigning the ramps connecting I-390 to State Route 386, upgrading signals and installing an additional lane along the ramp connecting I-390 southbound to State Route 386 to better accommodate traffic and reduce backups. These ramps are critical for motorists as they facilitate access to a number of nearby points of interest, including the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport, Strong Memorial Hospital, Genesee Valley Park, and Rochester Institute of Technology. The project is slated for completion in August 2024.
  • $2.6 million to enhance the intersection of State Route 18 (Latta Road) and North Greece Road in the Town of Greece, Monroe County. The project will install designated left-turn lanes and upgrade traffic signals at this heavily trafficked intersection. Project completion is expected in the fall 2024.
  • $1.8 million to improve State Route 31 between State Route 19 and Transit Way in the Town of Sweden, Monroe County. Work includes the resurfacing of the roadway and the installation of a center turning lane and a new drainage system along this key roadway that serves nearby business corridors and provides access to the Village of Brockport in the north, State Route 531 to the east and to Genesee County in the west. The project is slated for completion in August 2024.
  • $1.4 million to rehabilitate State Route 5&20 from Lake Street in the City of Geneva, Ontario County to the Ontario County-Seneca County line. This project will reduce the roadway from two lanes in each direction to one lane eastbound and two west bound, providing additional space for pedestrians and bicyclists. The project will enhance connectivity to nearby attractions, such as downtown Geneva and Seneca Lake State Park, as well as to the famous Finger Lakes Wine Region along Seneca Lake. Additionally, this work builds on the City of Geneva’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative projects to enhance State Route 5&20 within the city. Major work is slated to be completed by June 2024.
