Many Rochesterians are not aware of the fact that a 1.2 km long tunnel exists in downtown Rochester (the longer of two tunnels downtown). The former bed of the Erie Canal and the aqueduct that carried the canal later became the Rochester Industrial and Rapid Transit Railway or commonly known as the Rochester subway. After the subway closed, the tunnel was used to store newsprint for the Gannet Rochester papers and a haven for graffiti artists. Join us for a fascinating underground tour of the tunnel and then learn about upcoming plans to reimage the Erie Canal Aqueduct.
The tour will be led by Charles Lowe, P.E, NYSDOT, Thomas Hack, P.E. City of Rochester, Retired. The presentation will be coordinated by Kamal Crues, P.E. current City of Rochester Assistant City Engineer. The event is being coordinated by Howard Ressel, P.E. NYSDOT retired, Popli Design Group.
