ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The City of Rochester is exploring its options as to where a new intermodal transportation center should be built.
On Wednesday the city along with the DOT and Federal Railroad Administration held an open house for the public to review its list of potential sites where the transportation center, which includes busses, trains, and taxis, should go. The top three locations are the existing Amtrak Station on Central Avenue, the Kodak parking lot on State Street or on Andrews Street just west of the Genesee River.
Project manager Mark Mcamany said, “Depending on the site, that's one of the reasons. If you choose the existing site, you're probably looking at a project in the $25-50 million range. If you go to some of the other site ideas, which have some merit for some other reasons, the cost could more than double."
The study will run for the next nine months, it's anticipated to be finished in summer 2012.
