Join us for a compelling moderated panel discussion on one of Rochester's most ambitious urban revitalization projects, the removal and redevelopment of the Inner Loop interstate. The redesigned Inner Loop North corridor is intended to restore much of Rochester’s original street grid and reconnect Downtown to the northern neighborhoods of Brown Square, High Falls, Upper Falls, and Marketview Heights. The new alignment will cater to multi-modal users, providing pedestrian and cyclist facilities on low-speed, city-style streets. Several acres of land along the corridor will be reclaimed, providing significant opportunities for development, including planned infill development and green space creation.
Our panel of experts will introduce the Inner Loop projects, provide a brief history of the Inner Loop and discuss the successes and lessons learned from the Inner Loop East segment project completed in 2017 and how that is shaping the efforts for the Inner Loop North transformation project.
We look forward to welcoming you to this enriching panel discussion and networking mixer event as we explore how this project has the potential to future enrich and restore our community.
