Improvements to the corridor as the 1st phase of the Mount Hope Avenue improvement project in Rochester, NY.


Situated in the University of Rochester’s “College Town” district, the Mount Hope Avenue corridor improvements served as a highly effective catalyst for over $100 million in redevelopment that is now rising towards completion along the corridor. 

This project is the 1st phase of the Mount Hope Avenue Improvement Project, an urban principal arterial bordered by mixed land use and intense commercial business access. The project improved vehicular operations and safety, reconstructed the deteriorated infrastructure, enhanced the aesthetic appearance of the corridor, and improved pedestrian, bicycle, and transit conditions from Rossiter Road to Elmwood Avenue, including portions of Elmwood Avenue and Crittenden Boulevard.
