Lake Ontario State Parkway

West End: NY 18 - Lakeside Beach State Park
East End: Lake Ave. - Rochester


This is the eastern terminus of the Lake Ontario State Parkway at Lake Avenue in Rochester. Ahead is the ROW under construction for the new O'Rorke Bridge http://www.ororkebridge.com. Also, the Parkway itself is under construction west to Latta Road; on this day, the WB roadway was closed and torn up for reconstruction. Whether the Parkway designation will be extended over the O'Rorke Bridge is anyone's guess. Photo taken by Nathan Perry on August 8, 2001.



Lake Ontario State. Pkwy. at its eastern terminus. According to David Petit, "The parkway will not extend past this point; the road ahead will become Pattonwood Dr. The parkway median actually ends now about 1/5 of a mile before the end. The completion of the new bridge has been delayed at least 6 months to a year because of ground problems in the river". Photo taken by David R. Petit on July 15, 2002.



Lake Ontario State Pkwy., Seaway Trail and War of 1812 shields denoting the eastern beginning of the Lake Ontario State Pkwy. at Lake Ave. in Rochester (that “War of 1812” directional shield should be pointing straight and to the right). The new road running to the new bridge is just about complete, and runs between the white church and the empty Post Office. Completion of the new O’Rorke bridge has been delayed 2 years; and is not scheduled to be opened until middle-late 2004. Photo taken by David R. Petit on October 3, 2002.



In conjunction with the reconstruction of the Lake Ontario State Parkway the DOT put up this LOSP sign just as you turn on to the Parkway from Lake Ave. This sign is now the first reassurance sign for westbound LOSP. No END sign was put up. Photo taken by David R. Petit on July 15, 2002.
