"It leaves you kind of disgusted. We’re getting another short end of the stick again and that’s not fair.”

Dozens of people showed up to the Northland Workforce Training Center to come face to face with the NYSDOT to get some clear answers on the billion-dollar Kensington Expressway project.

An amazing call for action and answers on the Kensington Expressway “cap” project. Rarely do we see something like this from the Buffalo News editorial board.

We have a world-class Parkway system. Let's restore a vital part of that system and reconnect Delaware and MLK Parks.

Rebuild Housing. Plenty of space for new housing on an infilled expressway south of Best St. Rebuild Neighborhoods.

The NYSDOT Cap does nothing for the Fruit Belt. Don't they deserve to be made whole?

"Come senators, congressmen,
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
The battle outside ragin'
Will soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'"

In 30-degree weather residents and supporting organizations came together and marched from Jefferson to the Expressway in solidarity to have the NYSDOT do the right thing for our community.

The Tunnel does nothing to reduce air pollution and poor health outcomes in our community.

In the coming years, the State of New York will spend $30 million to downgrade the Scajaquada Expressway and another $6 million to study the idea of covering the Kensington Expressway from Best Street to Ferry Street. When visiting Buffalo to discuss highlights of the 2016-17 budget, Gov. Andrew M.....

The Honorable Assembly Leaders comments are very enlightening - the level of misinformed, malignant commentary is astonishing - our comments will follow shortly

Majority Assembly Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes hailed the potential of the Kensington Expressway project to better the lives of Black people on the East Side while chastising critics who, she said,

Please consider calling these politicians.

Insist that a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is conducted.

Ask if they support the NYS’ Climate Laws. The Climate Leadership & Community Protection Act (CLCPA) was co-sponsored by Senator Kennedy & Assemblymember Peoples-Stokes. It requires that disadvantaged communities will especially benefit from the State’s investments and opportunities— but the DOT’s objective to “maintain vehicular traffic” by drilling out a tunnel that will increase carbon monoxide levels at the tunnel ends by a whopping 138%! directly contradicts this law.

Suggest that the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC) be the lead agency on this project. The DOT is not engaging effectively with the community. The GBNRTC is the agency that took on the 198 project. Why should the 198 be treated any differently than the 33?
