Dansville Transportation Study

UPDATE: Click HERE to review a draft copy of the Dansville Transportation & Industrial & Commercial Access Study.

Promoting Industrial and Commercial Growth in the Dansville Area

The Village of Dansville has assets and attributes that, if properly developed, can serve as a catalyst for economic development and regional competitiveness. These include access to Interstate 390, shovel-ready development sites, local rail service, and a municipal airport. Dansville, as a transportation crossroads, creates a range of commercial and industrial traffic patterns; cars, trucks, railroads, and airplanes all have roles in the region’s manufacturing, retail and service sector activities. There is an increased potential for conflict between these transportation activities and residential areas as the area is developed.

The Dansville Transportation and Industrial and Commercial Access Study identifies the improvements that are required to develop a transportation system that fosters marketability in the commercial and manufacturing sectors, and then identifies strategies for funding those improvements and attracting business. The study area includes a portion of the Village of Dansville, Town of North Dansville, Town of Sparta and Town of West Sparta. Major land uses include the Dansville Industrial Park, LMC Industrial Contractors, Inc., Noyes Memorial Hospital, Genesee Community College, and 4 retail/business plazas. Major transportation features include Interstate 390 (Exits 4 and 5), Genesee & Wyoming Railroad, Dansville Municipal Airport, State Routes 63 and 36.

Two primary goals are to:

Enhance regional competitiveness and promote long-term economic development in the Dansville area.
Help Dansville revitalize, expand and upgrade their physical infrastructure to retain and encourage expansion of existing businesses, attract new businesses and diversify the local economy, and generate jobs and investment for the long-term.
