TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) - Six people have been killed while walking on a dangerous stretch of Niagara Falls Blvd. in recent months.
Local lawmakers are asking state leaders to help make the street safer.
Town leaders in Tonawanda and Amherst found dozens of potential safety hazards during a "walking audit" over the summer.
Now, a group of state lawmakers wants the Department of Transportation to make changes, like brighter crossing signs and more visible crosswalks.
