BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) –Mayor Byron Brown announced a milestone to three major infrastructure projects Monday.

Niagara Street, Main Street, and Walden Avenue had final paving completed in the past two weeks representing a total of $14.9 million in infrastructure improvements.

“My Administration is continuing the great infrastructure work our City residents have come to expect and
deserve in every corner of the City since 2006,” Brown said. “Our investment in infrastructure is critical
to the continuation of Buffalo’s renaissance. Good roads, streets, sidewalks, and other projects to enhance the vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian experience across our City is not only good for our residents, but these projects also help attract new employers, while making transportation easier for existing businesses.”

Between Delaware Avenue and Fairchild Place, paving of Hertel Avenue was also recently completed, and a multi-phase overhaul of Abbott Road in South Buffalo, from Southside Avenue to Meriden Street, is ongoing.

The improvements are part of the overall $58 million in infrastructure improvements that the City has scheduled for 2021. The City has invested over $290 million in infrastructure improvements since 2006.
