Market Information

The Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to promoting the Town of Irondequoit as a great place to live and do business.

Irondequoit is an inner-ring suburb of the City of Rochester, within the County of Monroe, in the state of New York. The town's land area is approximately 16 square miles, and is colloquially called a peninsula owing to Irondequoit being bordered by water on three sides: the Genesee River to the west, Lake Ontario to the north, and Irondequoit Bay to the east. Irondequoit is known for affordable, diverse housing stock, waterfront homes, parkside homes, and historic houses dating from mid-19th century to new builds, with 25% of homes built before WWII, and more than 50% built before 1959.

Major Roadways and Travel Features

Irondequoit is centrally located in Monroe County and conveniently situated to major expressways, highways, and city arteries.

New York State Route 104

New York State Route 104 is a major east-west highway that stretches across New York State, connecting Irondequoit to Greece in the west and Webster in the east. The portion of the roadway that travels through Irondequoit (a.k.a. the Keeler Street Expressway) is a limited access divided highway with seven exits, and average daily traffic of between 75,000 and 80,000 vehicles. Route 104 overlaps with Route 590 in the east before continuing across Irondequoit Bay and into Webster, New York.

New York State Route 590

New York State Route 590 is a major north-south limited access divided highway in eastern Irondequoit that forms the northeastern section of Rochester's ÔÇťouter loop." Access to the highway is via Route 104, or major east-west thoroughfares of Empire Boulevard, Norton Street, and Ridge Road. Average daily traffic of between 85,000 and 98,000 vehicles travel the portions of Route 590 in Irondequoit. The northern terminus of the 590 freeway is at Titus Avenue, with access continuing northward to Lake Ontario via the contiguous Sea Breeze Drive. Traveling south on Route 590 gains access to I-490, I-590, I-390, and, eventually, the New York State Thruway.

Major Surface Roads

Irondequoit's major east-west surface roads traversing commercial and residential areas are Lakeshore Drive, Titus Avenue, East Ridge Road, and eastern portions of Norton Street and Empire Boulevard. Lakeshore Drive is a notable scenic route running parallel to the Lake Ontario shoreline. The first 1.6 miles of East Ridge Road is located in the city of Rochester.

Irondequoit's major north-south surface roads traversing commercial and residential areas are St. Paul Boulevard, Clinton Avenue, Hudson Avenue, Portland Avenue, Goodman Street, and Culver Road. All of these roadways travel southward connecting to the City of Rochester.

Bridges

As Irondequoit is bordered by water on three sides, bridges provide access and two locations each across the Genesee River and Irondequoit Bay.

The Veterans Memorial Bridge carries New York State Route 104 across the Genesee River. The bridge is an architecturally significant concrete arch faced with white granite. The span is the longest bridge in Rochester at 981 feet, and is 190 feet above the river gorge. Connects to the City of Rochester and Town of Greece beyond.

To the north, the Colonel Patrick O'Rorke Memorial Bridge at Irondequoit's Pattonwood Drive rises approximately 45 feet over the Genesee, less than a mile from the mouth of the river at Lake Ontario. The bridge is a double leaf drawbridge that allows ship traffic passage up the Genesee River. Connects to the City of Rochester and Town of Greece beyond.

The Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge is a seasonal bridge located at the north end of Irondequoit Bay, spanning the bay outlet between Culver Road in Irondequoit and Lake Road in the Town of Webster. Annually, the bridge is swung into place for use by motorists 5 months out of the year (November 1 - March 31) and swung away to storage to open the channel for boaters 7 months out of the year (April 1 - October 31). Connects the Sea Breeze neighborhood to the Town of West Webster.

The Irondequoit Bay Bridge is a continuous truss bridge carrying the six-lane New York State Route 104 over Irondequoit Bay, from eastern Irondequoit to Webster. The bay bridge carries an average daily traffic of 65,000 vehicles. Connects to the Town of Webster.
