Sen. Schumer asks feds for funds to fill in the Inner Loop

Sen. Schumer asks feds for funds to fill in the Inner Loop

Rochester, NY -- U.S. Senator Charles Schumer is making the case for filling in part of Rochester's Inner Loop.

Schumer asked U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx in a meeting Friday to select the city's application for $17.7 million discretionary grant.

Schumer says the Inner Loop is an underutilized and deteriorated highway that isolates Rochester's downtown from nearby neighborhoods -- creating an impediment to economic activity and business development in the area.

He says the project would replace the southeast section of the loop and replace it with a boulevard and room for real estate development.
