T.Y. Lin International was retained to complete the 5&20 Corridor Study from Canandaigua to Lima. This corridor is a scenic roadway serving the needs of truckers, commuters, tourists and non-motorized transportation users as well as the day-to-day needs of area residents.

Project Highlights:

  • Multiple agency coordination
  • Multiple professional services provided including visualization, GIS mapping, and transportation planning
  • Awarded the largest planning grant ever funded by the New York State Council of the Arts

T.Y. Lin International’s role for this planning study was to assess traffic/transportation impacts associated with the proposed build-out scenario; conduct a thorough inventory of natural and cultural resources, scenic views, and other important corridor assets; develop a vision for the corridor along with goals and objectives for future development; provide specific recommendations needed to implement the development vision identified; identify and develop access and traffic management techniques and improvements that would minimize safety hazards, congestion points, and property access problems; present the recommendations and improvements in a format suitable for adoption by municipalities as addendums or amendments to their current comprehensive plan; and incorporate the interests of the counties, municipalities, involved agencies, business owners, residents, commuters, and other interested organizations or individuals.

This study involved a significant public participation effort, visualization, and GIS mapping as well as land use planning, transportation planning and access management.

As a result of the project, the corridor was awarded a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts to implement planning and zoning recommendations outlined in the study. It was the largest planning grant the council had ever funded.

Ontario County served as lead agency on the project, with significant involvement from Livingston County, the Towns of Lima, East Bloomfield, West Bloomfield and Canandaigua, the Villages of Lima and Bloomfield, GTC and NYSDOT.
