Kenney Place - A Connector Road

Perinton had received complaints from residents for several years about safety concerns relative to exiting Chardonnay Drive onto Pittsford-Palmyra Road (NYS Rt. 31). Because there are traffic signal lights nearby in both directions, New York State's reviews of this intersection acknowledged that there were concerns but felt installing another signal so close to the existing ones would hamper traffic flow and be more unsafe than the existing condition.

Perinton initiated a plan with Erdman Anthony for a different solution - connecting Chardonnay Drive to Courtney Drive, which was already signalized. This allows cars exiting Chardonnay to travel west one block on the new road to reach a safe, signalized intersection by which to access Route 31. The new road offers improved access for adjacent properties and a safe option for residents accessing Pittsford-Palmyra Road.

The new road is named Kenney Place. Members of the Kenney family have played important roles in Perinton/Fairport history including serving as Fairport Village Clerk, Fairport Fire Chief, Fairport Chief of Police, Town Assessor and employee of the Perinton Highway Department.

This project won the 2010 Genesee Valley Branch's APWA Project of the Year Award for Transportation Projects <$5 million category.
