Kahler remodel affecting traffic

February 15, 2019

Continued work at the Kahler Hotel is expected to affect downtown traffic heading into the weekend.

On Thursday and Friday, the south parking lane and the eastbound traffic lane on West Center Street, north of the hotel, will be closed, according to Rochester Public Works.

Eastbound traffic will be shifted to the north, onto the current westbound traffic lane, and westbound traffic will be moved into the parking lane located on the north side of Center Street.

On Saturday, a section of First Avenue Southwest is expected to be closed as a crane lifts materials on the the hotel.

The closure extends approximately 25 feet north and south of the pedestrian crossing at the Peace Plaza. Vehicle and and pedestrian traffic will be affected.
