Most main and secondary streets reopened in the city following storm


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Erie Basin Marina and Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park (LaSalle Park) remains closed at this time due to the storm.

Most main and secondary streets have been reopened or are passable at this time after being blocked by downed trees earlier, according to City Forestry officials. Thirty streets remain blocked.

Crews and contractors are continuing to work through tonight and tomorrow to remove the trees. Residents with tree-related issues are asked to call 311.

The Department of Public Works says 20 traffic signals are out in different sections of the city. Portable stop signs at several major intersections are being installed. This includes Masten and Best, Delaware and Tacoma, Elmwood and Utica, and Seneca and Bailey.

City officials want drivers to treat traffic signals that are out as a four-way stop.

Part of the Bird Island Pier was compromised during the storm and will be inspected next week. The pier remains closed at the Peace Bridge.
