Town Supervisor Ciaran Hanna and the Perinton Town Board recently voted to invest in the replacement of existing asphalt sidewalks along the Whitney Road Corridor that are in poor condition. The work is set to begin on Wednesday, October 12, and will conclude by the end of the month. The only impact to traffic will be a daily shoulder closure.
The new concrete sidewalks will enhance our extensive sidewalk network maintained by the Town year-round, providing mobility for people of all ages and abilities. This project is part of an ongoing plan to upgrade the pedestrian accommodations along the entire length of Whitney Road. It will also complement the paving work recently completed by Monroe County on Whitney Road.
Sidewalks help keep us safe and connected and make Perinton a more walkable community. Learn more below.
