Schumer encourages DOT to fund changes in expressway
Rochester, N.Y. – In an attempt to bring $17.7 million to Rochester, Senator Charles Schumer sat down with the Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx Friday afternoon.
Schumer urged Foxx to consider awarding Rochester with the $17.7 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Discretionary Grant, for the City’s Inner Loop East Reconstruction Project.
If granted, the project would remove the southeast section of the 12-lane Inner Loop Expressway and replace it with a new high-quality boulevard.
The changes would open up roughly nine acres of land, and allow for more businesses and residencies.
