Project Background

The Genesee Transportation Council's Unified Planning Work Program is an annual funding program designed to create plans and/or studies to guide future improvements to the regional transportation infrastructure.

The Town of Canandaigua has been awarded funding under this program to undertake the Middle Cheshire Road & Health Care Services Corridor Active Transportation Plan. Due to recent growth, Middle Cheshire Road has seen an increase in traffic of all types - vehicular, pedestrian, and bycicle use of the corridor have all increased in recent years. There have been several accidents involving property damage, injury, and even a fatality. Additionally, the transportation network surrounding Thompson Hospital and the supporting healthcare facilities could be improved for non-motorized users. Furthermore, there is not currently a safe and viable connection across State Route 5 & 20 to connect Middle Cheshire Road with the healthcare facilities for anyone not traveling in a vehicle.  

As a result, the Town and the City of Canandaigua would like to plan for future improvements to the entire study area that would make travel more efficient and safer for all users. 

For more information on this project, see the project documents below, specifically the Scope of Work. More materials will be added to the list as the project progresses. You may also reach out to the project contacts at right (or below if on a mobile device). Better yet, come to one of our public meetings or workshops to learn more about the project and participate in the planning process!
