Solving the snarl: Reps looking at ways to make Rt. 96 commute easier in Victor

It’s arguably the longest 6-mile drive in Ontario County. The Route 96 corridor through Victor — on the way to or from work, on a weekend, or during holiday shopping season — has been a headache-inducer for commuters, business owners and residents for years.

Town, village, county and state representatives are looking for solutions to ease that pain, and are asking people who travel Route 96 to tell their stories.

Steering Committee members behind the Route 96 Transformative Corridor Strategic Infrastructure Plan will host a public input workshop on Thursday, Aug. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Victor Town Hall, 85 E. Main St. The meeting will be an open house format, and will not include a formal presentation. Instead, Route 96 motorists will be doing the talking.

Director of Development Katie Evans said the personal experiences gleaned Thursday will round out the statistical information gathered by an online survey that’s been working since mid-July.
