BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A number of local leaders came together to announce more funding for Main Street in Buffalo.

The Cars Sharing Main Street project is nearly finished. On Monday afternoon, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes, Congressman Brian Higgins and NFTA Executive Director Kim Minkel were among those announcing $54.5 million in new funding to continue the work.

The purpose of the project is making sure both regular vehicles and the NFTA Metro Rail are able to move down Main Street with ease. Local leaders say this will spur business growth downtown.
