We need your input! The Buffalo Harbor Bridge project involves environmental and engineering studies to establish a new multimodal link across the Buffalo River/City Ship Canal. Comments received from over 60 public and stakeholder meetings, along with state and federal agency input and the project purpose and need, resulted in narrowing the field of possible crossing alternatives to two locations: the foot of Main Street and the an extension of Erie Street to Fuhrmann Blvd. The “null” or “do-nothing” alterative is also being considered.

 

We want to work with you to establish this vital link on Buffalo’s waterfront. Two public Placemaking meetings will be held for the Buffalo Harbor Bridge. The purpose of these meetings is to: visit the site and get a firsthand look at the retained alterative bridge site; update attendees on the status of the project; View the project real-time interactive model and look at the retained location alternatives; small group discussions related to project opportunities and considerations.

 

Please note this is not a public hearing. A public hearing for the Buffalo Harbor Bridge Project will be held at a later date after the publication of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). Your input at this meeting will help identify opportunities and considerations to be included in the DEIS.
