The bridges carry eastbound and westbound I-490 over Chili Center Coldwater Road (Route 386) in Chili and eastbound and westbound I-490 over Route 204 (Airport Expressway) in Gates.
(Thursday, April 25, 2013) - Mayor Thomas S. Richards announced today that the City's Summer of Opportunity (SOOP) work and career exploration program for city youth will expand its scope due to the efforts of State Senator Joe Robach.
"Senator Robach has secured almost half of the funding for this program, which means more than 400 city high school students will have an opportunity to spend their summers in meaningful jobs or exploring modern career alternatives," said Mayor Richards. "The Senator's commitment to Rochester's future is well known, and he has demonstrated it yet again with this grant. The people of Rochester are truly fortunate to have such an effective advocate in Albany."
Today, I had the opportunity to co-sponsor Build a Better New York Day at the State Capitol, joining hard working men and women from across the state to call for an investment in our aging infrastructure.
