Advocates Push for Tearing Down Freeway Through Olmsted Corridor
A study is underway to consider the feasibility to "cap" the expressway to manage the environmental pollution that is leaking into the neighborhood. Some locals are advocating for studying the at-grade boulevard concept at the same time.
Brian Meyer writes, "Masten District resident David Torke is a neighborhood advocate who sits on Buffalo's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board. He supports a resolution sponsored by Masten Council Member Demone A. Smith that would have the city go on record in support of studying a boulevard-like option for this stretch of the expressway.
"It's an unparalleled opportunity to get it right," he said."
