BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The international crossing has been the site of a bitter battle between Albany and Canadian officials.
Governor Andrew Cuomo met with Canadian Ambassadors, hoping to put an end to the Peace Bridge battle.
Rising tensions over the embattled peace bridge may soon be quelled.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has met with two Canadian Ambassadors to discuss the future of the Peace Bridge Authority and future work on the American side of the bridge.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said, "Let's do something, finally."
Earlier this month, the governor spoke about the need for work on the American side of the bridge. This included threatening to sign legislation which was already passed by the legislature, that would disband the bridge authority.
Cuomo said, "What I'm hoping is that we settle it amicably, but Buffalo and the American side has a real trajectory of progress."
Progress would come in the form of construction.
A number of projects would get started, including new on and off ramps, built at the Peace Bridge Plaza.
Maria Lehman, the Peace Bridge Project Manager said, "So you're moving all this traffic here, and you're talking about a quarter of a mile away from the neighborhood, because these homes are all existing homes."
This new construction would eliminate confusion and alleviate congestion in the heavily travelled neighborhood where polluted air has become a big concern.
"It's a single point contact, or a single point of connection, to and from the plaza. It should make things a lot easier," said Tom Donahue, Consultant's Project Manager.
A spokesman for the Governor says these peace bridge meetings have been ongoing as the high level officials work to reach a deal, on friendly terms.
Talks continue to take place, but there is still no deal that has been reached.
