Gas Main Work and Folwell Walking Routes

In collaboration with Rochester Public Schools Transportation Department, Folwell students and families who walk to school are to use 7th Street Southwest, instead of 6th Street Southwest, when walking to school during this gas main maintenance work.  There is a crossing guard at the four-way stop on the corner of 14th Avenue SW and 7th St SW, and there are patrols to assist with crossing on 15th Ave SW and 7th St SW.

Please see the Public Service Announcement below, from the City of Rochester Public Works Department for more information. 

There are maps available in the Folwell Office, for your reference, as well.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.  Feel free to call, email or come in to meet with me.

Thank you!
