Block of First Avenue to close Monday

May 13, 2019

First Avenue Southwest will be closed from Peace Plaza to Center Street starting Monday.

The closure, which is expected to extend to May 28, marks the beginning of the next phase of the changes to the Wells Fargo building, according to Rochester Public Works.

It will make way for the relocation of a water main.

The sidewalk along the east side of First Avenue will also be closed, requiring pedestrians to use the sidewalk on the west side of the street.
