Station 6: Evaluating future options

Here is what others have said about the evaluation criteria:

  • Please add Creek Walk green to tall community resources map (now missing).

  • We should be designing forward not reflecting on existing design or existing fuel sources.

  • For all strategies - would have been helpful to have estimated time frame for completion i.e. how long would area be under construction and therefore out of commission for travel?

  • Dissemination of data calculation/ collection methodologies for traffic/ transit usage projections? Census data? NY's Department of Labor demographics? Historical data has obvious sources for calculations; I would be interested to learn how prediction data were determined.

  • Consider the residents (and attracting residents) of the areas adjacent to 81, and their quality of life (as opposed to commuters). If we want to revitalize downtown with lofts, hotels, etc., a radical rethinking is fundamental.

  • Additional assessment evaluation details potential risks associated with each of the proposed strategies. Each proposed project involves significant pros/cons - please conduct functional analysis with detailed evaluation of potential ricks thereby associated with project activities. Considerations are important to share; however, an estimate of functional relevance should not be over looked. Project plan documentation when appropriate; detailed scope, requirements, work, resources required etc.

  • A large factor in me moving here over 40 years ago as opposed to Rochester was the easy access from the suburbs to the University Hill/ hospitals area. There is more and more traffic in that area due to increased building etc. causing congestion getting off 81 and 690. Please don't make permanent changes to make the rush hours traffic even worse.

  • Perhaps the most logical alternative is to do nothing on the assumption that by the time 81 collapses, there will be no gasoline (oil) available to power vehicles.

  • Be sure to include economic impact to businesses at 81/ 90 interchange, especially several hotels at exit 25.

  • Having infomation at state fair - Center of Progress would get significant exposure. - Comment discussed
    (Posted on:5/16/2012 2:26:57 PM)

  • Were the traffic counts on 81 done in April? They should be done during summer months due to recreational traffic. - Comment heard

  • Note that this type of forecast can be self-fulfilling. If you build it, they will drive on it (especially if there's not alternative).
    (Posted on:5/16/2012 2:24:57 PM)

  • Who are we trying to help here? The people who live and work in the city or the interests of those who choose to live elsewhere?

  • Include bicycle lanes in all concepts.
    (Posted on:5/16/2012 2:22:59 PM)

  • Bike lanes (continuous) don't "dead end," then sidewalks with green between curb and sidewalk.
    (Posted on:5/16/2012 2:22:37 PM)

  • Separated bike lanes, paths, etc. On existing lanes, continue the path to/through the intersection. Bike boxes etc. etc. etc. Go to and

  • Add green park in front of justice center, former police station, co. Power plant to new court building (missing now).

  • Don't cheap out!

  • The criterion of "enhance connectivity between University Hill and downtown" is pathetically nebulous, and the proposed metrics are a bunch of ridiculous gobbledy-gook. What the hell is the "barrier effect" and how do you propose to "qualitatively" measure it? If you want to take a survey and ask people living downtown whether each proposed solution will make them feel more connected to the University Hill area, this would be an acceptable measurement method. What you have written now is pure garbage.
