The new $145-million Golisano Children’s Hospital tower, to be located on Crittenden Boulevard and attached to the Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital, will be eight floors and approximately 245,000 square feet of space dedicated to children and their families. When the new hospital opens in 2015, private rooms and a greatly expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will provide our families with much-needed privacy and will enhance infection control efforts.

College Town is a comprehensive plan to redevelop 14 acres of University-owned property with 500,000 square feet of retail and dining space, hotel and conference facilities, parking, and housing for the Mt. Hope and University communities and area visitors. The $100 million project at the intersection of Mt. Hope and Elmwood avenues has been a vision for local community partners since 2008 and promises to provide economic benefits to the region, while building a welcoming and cohesive University-neighborhood community.
There will be active traffic to and from the site throughout November. Contractors are using a sweeper/vacuum truck to clean the streets periodically throughout the work day. They have also placed crushed stone “scrubber aprons” near the exits of the site to try to deter the mud and soil from being tracked onto the streets. Truck traffic will use a new entrance on Elmwood Avenue and the entrance at Mt. Hope Avenue and Celebration Drive as the major thoroughfare for the project work.
The City of Rochester has approved the closing of the sidewalk along Elmwood Avenue on the south side of the road from East Drive to Mt. Hope Avenue. Pedestrians are encouraged to cross over Elmwood Avenue at the crosswalk located at Thomas Jackson Drive traffic signal to the north side sidewalk.
Celebration Drive utility infrastructure installation is complete. New base and granite curbs have been installed.
A crane was erected along East Drive to begin the process for the new parking garage. The crane is expected to continue installing piles to support the garage through Feb. 21, 2014.
