New York State Department of Transportation, Region 4 undertook a project to bring comprehensive improvements to a Rochester, New York, interchange that connects 200,000 motorists daily to the region’s centers of economic activity.
Commuters through the I-390 at I-490 interchange had dealt with years of steadily building congestion, with traffic backing up in all directions during peak hours. The conditions also impacted the surrounding neighborhoods.
Erdman Anthony collaborated with Cold Spring Construction Co. on Phases 3 and 4 of the design-build project, which included four new bridges, new embankment, pavement rehabilitation, enhanced lighting, traffic signal design, new noise walls, and reconstruction of a portion of Lyell Avenue.
