Episode 6: Biking Down the Road

Rochester is known nationwide for being a major successful case study through the Inner Loop East freeway removal project which reconnected downtown with the city. Over the past twenty years Rochester has expanded bike lanes, parks, and other crucial non-auto infrastructure amenities. Is it enough? Will Rochester not only be the model for freeway infill, but also biking infrastructure?


In Biking Down the Road, Hear UR investigates Rochester’s biking future through discussions with Rochester City Planner Scott Thompson, and Reconnect Rochester’s Jesse Peers.
