BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– We’re getting a first look at possible designs of the Riverline Trail.

The Western New York Land Conservancy held a virtual meeting tonight, showing off the proposals.

This trail will eventually connect Canalside to the Outer Harbor. Congressman Brian Higgins was on the February 25 call.

He called on organizers to make it bold.

“We want to put buffalo on the map, not only as a Riverline, but the Riverline, that other cities look to emulate as they seek to recapture old industrial land, old railroads, into a place where people can congregate.”

Congressman Higgins says Congress is already working on another COVID-19 relief package that could help fund this project.
