Two Rochester road closures
Two road closures will redirect traffic in Rochester during the week of Oct. 5., one in the city's downtown and the other in the southeast quadrant.
Beginning Wednesday, westbound lanes of 12th Street Southeast will close from Fourth Avenue to Eighth Avenue Southeast. Rochester Public Works crews will be repairing sewer manholes along the roadway, according to a city press release.
Access to businesses in the construction area will be maintained, but work will occur in intersections and access from the north to 12th Street Southeast will be affected.
Eighth Avenue Southeast will stay open with temporary closures during the work to allow traffic to and from Lincoln Choice Elementary.
The lanes will reopen to traffic on Monday, Oct. 12.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, one block of Second Avenue Southwest will close to through traffic to allow for construction at the 501 on First building.
The north half of Second Avenue Southwest from Fifth Street to Sixth Street Southwest will close to through traffic. The intersection at Second Avenue and Fifth Street Southwest will remain open for east-west traffic and northbound traffic from Fifth Street Southwest.
