It's a project to make traffic going to and around the University of Rochester a little smoother and bring more jobs to the Rochester area. While in town Thursday, Governor Cuomo announced funding to build phases of the 390 ramp expansion has been secured.

The full project includes new exit ramps, expanded lanes and a new bridge at Route 390 and Kendrick Road. You've probably seen work being done in that area lately.

The $70 million project has brought thousands of construction jobs to our area. UR officials say besides making travel in that area smoother, it will also create thousands of jobs for the university itself.
