Inner Loop plan changes

Rochester, N.Y. -- After concerns from merchants along Monroe Avenue about the Inner Loop project, the city has had a change of heart.

The city wanted to create a pedestrian island, citing safety concern, but it would have also prevented cars from turning left onto Monroe Avenue.

Business owners were worried the addition would impact them negatively.

City engineer Jim McIntosh said the city has come up with a solution. Cars will now be able to turn on Monroe Avenue, but only during non-peak rush hours, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

McIntosh said he believes people who must use the new street pattern will most likely try to access Interstate 490 rather than Monroe Avenue.
