Preserve and Enhance the Upper Empire Corridor: Keep 2 Lanes East and 2 Lanes West



As a resident and/or stakeholder in the Upper Empire Corridor area of East Irondequoit, we believe the current configuration of Empire Boulevard between Helendale Road and Culver Road, with two lanes of travel East and two lanes of travel West, should be preserved. We believe the impacts of traffic congestion events require the preservation of roadway capacity in this corridor. We further believe that additional enhancements and amenities, such as improved / completed sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and shoulders can be accommodated alongside and integrated with the existing 2 lanes of travel in each direction. We call on the NYS DOT to reconsider the planned "Road Diet" and instead find a "win-win" solution that better serves all residents, stakeholders, and users of this vital corridor and artery in our region.
