BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — On Wednesday morning, a number of local leaders came together to announce millions of dollars in funding to improve Abbott Road in south Buffalo.

These coming improvements are part of a larger multi-phase reconstruction of the road. The first phase, which wrapped up in November, cost $3.9 million.

The next section to get upgrades, which includes the areas of Mercy Hospital and Cazenovia Park, is one of the road’s most trafficked sections.
