ROCHESTER – The New York Museum of Transportation presents the history of Rochester’s expressway interchange known as the “Can of Worms.”
The presentation is at 1 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 8 and is free with admission of $5 for adults and $4 for kids under 12.
The I-490/I-590 expressway interchange is a complex engineering work with a fascinating history. Charles Lowe will tell how the infamous original interchange came into being along with a summary of how the present interchange was designed and built.
Open Sundays only (winter hours 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.), the New York Museum of Transportation features an array of full-size trolley cars, a steam locomotive, antique highway and horse-drawn vehicles, smaller artifacts and a large model railroad. The museum is located at 6393 East River Road, W. Henrietta, NY, just 20 minutes from downtown Rochester and easily reached from Exit 11 off I-390. In the summer season, the museum joins with the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum to provide a unique visitor experience of two museums connected by trolley and train rides.
