The Conservancy supports the Scajaquada Corridor Coalition and their vision to reconnect neighborhoods, revitalize the Scajaquada Creek and restore Buffalo's Olmsted landscapes.
Are you fed up with the fast speeds and dangerous pedestrian environment along Eggert Road?
The Town of Amherst and Town of Tonawanda, as well as the City of Buffalo, and the Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council have all partnered with the goal of finally addressing this overbuilt corridor by proposing a road diet to reduce it from four to two lanes, which will reduce speeds while maintaining capacity, increase walkability and bikability, and improve the quality of life on the street.
GObike Buffalo is supporting this project and working to make sure communities are aware and informed, so local residents can make sure their concerns or priorities are addressed by the relevant planners.
