Broad St Aqueduct

A while ago I heard about plans to revitalize Broad street in downtown Rochester by converting it back into the Canal.  This is what the aqueduct bridge was originally.  When I first heard of the plan, I thought it was neat but didn’t think it would ever work.  The biggest hurdle I can see to overcome is the traffic situation.  Broad street is a main roadway and carries a lot of traffic.

I just found out that the plans didn’t die.  In fact it seems like there are many proposals and that something may actually happen, although what exactly happens to broad st is still up in the air.  It will be very interesting to see what happens.  There’s a whole website dedicated to The Broad Street Corridor Renovations.  The proposals are really quite interesting so take a look.
