The 4th Of July will be here before you know it, and you'll want to take part in all that's happening...but you don't want to be frustrated trying to find a place to park, or by road construction, so here's some info you'll need to head toward and away from Soldiers Field Memorial Park.

From the City of Rochester -

  • Be aware of continued construction on 2nd Avenue SW, particularly near the intersection of 2nd Avenue and 4th Street SW which remains closed. Congestion may occur in this area. Ongoing construction projects can be monitored here (click for an awesome interactive map).
  • Rochester Public Transit will be following the published holiday schedule on Independence Day. Only Routes 21-26 will operate Monday, July 4. Full schedule HERE.
  • Given the potential for heavy vehicle and foot traffic on event day, we encourage you to plan extra time for travel to and from Soldiers Field Memorial Park all day on Monday, July 4.
