History:















NY 253's original alignment extended east along a duplex with NY 65 north to Calkins Rd., then east on Calkins and Mendon Center Roads to NY 64, then co-signed with NY 64 and NY 96 before following Washington St. (NY 153) to NY 441 in Penfield. When the Linear Park bridge over Irondequoit Creek was permanently closed in the 1960's, NY 253's alignment was moved to Linden Ave., Whitney Rd., and Five Mile Line Rd., ending at Penfield's "Four Corners." In the early 1970's, construction of the NY 441 expressway brought about another change in NY 253's alignment, as an extension of Panorama Trail was built to link NY 441 with Washington St. NY 253 was moved to this new alignment in the mid 1970's, and remained there until NY 253 was truncated to NY 65 in Mendon in 1983. The Washington St. and Panorama Trail sections were replaced with the NY 153 designation. The Calkins Rd./Mendon Center Rd. section is now Reference Route 943C.

In 2000, part of the Erie Station Rd. alignment was realigned onto Thruway Park Dr. because of increased commercial traffic resulting from the newly built Thruway Industrial Park. The Erie Station-W. Henrietta Rd. intersection, already a dangerous intersection, could not be expanded due to historical buildings located at the intersection.
