Video of the Day: Patch Reader Takes a Last Drive Down 'Old' Main Street

The next time he drives down this street, it will be new and improved.

Ride along with Patch blogger and Rochester resident David Gifford as he takes one last farewell drive down Main Street downtown. The road closed to traffic completely on Tuesday as part of the Main Street Makeover. When it reopens later this summer it will be rebuilt and resurfaced and surrounded by new trees and other streetscape features.

Would love to see this done weekly just to see the progress. Heard that the rail tracks were uncovered yesterday and would love to see a picture of that.

Christine, go to the Pics and Clips page. I got there in time last night to get a picture of a stack of rail road ties. The tracks were removed and patched over back in the late 30's / early 40's. I will try to get down there as often as I can to keep the updates current.
