East River Road begins in Brighton, adjacent to the Laboratory for Laser Energetics at UR's South Campus. It briefly heads west and passes through Genesee Valley Park, which is part of the City of Rochester. It emerges back into Brighton for a short distance before entering Henrietta at Crittenden Road. Kendrick Road is the only major intersection. East River also crosses Red Creek.


East River Road continues along the river and passes the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Major intersections are Route 252/Jefferson Road, Bailey Road, Lehigh Station Road, Route 253, and I-90. It enters Rush at the Rush-Henrietta Townline Road.
