Rochester, NY -- Rochester city officials will take comments tonight on the plan to fill in the east side of the Inner Loop, and convert it to a street level boulevard.
Project manager Paul Way says the plan has already received a so-called TIGER grant from the federal government in the amount of $17 million. The project is expected to reconnect the city's east side to the downtown area, boosting economic development opportunities.
The three-year project could start in September.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Bausch and Lomb Public Library Building at 110 South Avenue.
