New No Stopping, No Parking, and No Standing Signs at the Downtown Campus

New No Stopping, No Parking, and No Standing Signs at the Downtown Campus

Since we opened our doors to the Downtown Campus in fall 2017, members of our community have expressed concerns over safety at the mid-block crosswalk on Morrie Silver Way. We have met with the City and Monroe County Department of Transportation (DOT) to explore possible solutions given that this crosswalk falls within the jurisdiction of the City of Rochester. As a result, NO STOPPING signs have been installed on Morrie Silver Way between Plymouth Avenue and State Street. Please note that the City of Rochester will begin parking enforcement in this area, as indicated on the ATTACHED DIAGRAM. The explanations of the parking signs you are likely to see on the streets adjacent to the Downtown Campus are attached.

New York: VEHICLES MUST YIELD THE RIGHT-OF-WAY TO PEDESTRIANS CROSSING THE ROADWAY WITHIN A CROSSWALK UPON WHICH THE VEHICLE IS TRAVELING. PEDESTRIANS MAY NOT SUDDENLY LEAVE THE CURB AND ENTER A CROSSWALK INTO THE PATH OF A MOVING VEHICLE THAT IS SO CLOSE THE VEHICLE IS UNABLE TO YIELD. ) "MOTORISTS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY AT ALL LOCATIONS OTHER THAN INTERSECTIONS AND MARKED CROSSWALKS" (NY.GOV PEDESTRIAN SAFETY). At controlled intersections, pedestrians may only cross an intersection diagonally if authorized by a traffic control device.
