Whether it’s a tunnel, bridge, road diet, or another intersection – better connecting South Main Street and 5&20 has been a discussion topic for folks living in Canandaigua.

City Manager John Goodwin tells the Canandaigua Messenger that ‘no option’ is ‘off the table’ at this point. At this point, the City and Town are working together to form a group. That group will produce a long-term study, which could potentially unlock some ideas about a solution.

The two are using $80,000 in grant money through the Genesee Transportation Council to pay for a study conducted by the Canandaigua Local Development Corporation.

Last week, a resolution was passed affirming the study effort.

“It’s been a comprehensive plan and economic goal,” Goodwin told the Post. “We’re seeing if there is a way to make it happen.”

According to the Canandaigua Messenger, this is what the makeup of the Canandaigua Local Development Corp.:

“Carl Steinbrenner was elected president; Kevin Reynolds, vice president; Robert Taylor, treasurer; John Goodwin, secretary; and Andy Griffith, ethics officer. The board of directors is made up of five voting members and three ex-officio non-voting members. Two elected members of the board are Reynolds, a member of the Canandaigua Town Board, and City Councilmember Jim Terwilliger; and appointed members Griffith, Taylor and Steinbrenner. The non-voting members are Goodwin, Town Manager Doug Finch and Chamber Executive Director Ethan Fogg. The LDC meetings, which are open to the public, are the third Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. at the Chamber of Commerce, 113 S. Main St., Canandaigua.”

The newly-developed group will look at ways to best modify that extremely busy corridor for the benefit of both Town and City residents.
