About Empire Boulevard:
Empire Boulevard is part of an old travelway between Rochester and Webster which has been overtaken by Route 104. It gives a street name to Route 404 from its terminus in Irondequoit until Route 404 becomes Ridge Road in Webster. The route also serves as a portion of the Seaway Trail and becomes a temporary major artery when traffic or weather conditions block the Irondequoit Bay Bridge (Route 104).
Some important streets along the way (traveling east to west) are Gravel Road, Bay Road, Plank Road, North Winton Road, and Route 590.
