      • 90 Percent Plans for City Loop Phase 1 - Dedicated Bike Lanes on 3rd Avenue, 4th Avenue and Center (June 2019)

        The construction plans have advanced to a 90-percent level of design and engineering. They continue to evolve to best balance bicyclist safety and desired travel routes with downtown vehicular activity and business operations. A second round of public engagement was recently conducted with project stakeholders to provide comments on the 90-percent plans. Construction plan sheets shown here were extracted from the larger packet of construction documents as they best communicate the intended reconfiguration of the project streets. Final revisions are being made and construction documents suitable for public bidding by contractors are being developed. When complete, the City Council will decide whether to approve the plans and authorize Rochester Public Works to solicit construction bids. The current estimated time frame for the City Council decision is July or August 2019.
