Public Information Meeting
For the Final Design of the Parkway Removal Project
Main Street to Findlay Drive, Niagara Falls, NY

The New York State (NYS) Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation, in conjunction with its project partners the New York Power Authority, NYS Department of Transportation, USA Niagara Development Corporation, and the City of Niagara Falls, will hold a public information meeting for the Parkway Removal Project in Niagara Falls, NY.

The meeting will be held from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on October 26, 2017, at the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls located at 101 Old Falls Street in Niagara Falls, NY.

The major components of the Project include removal of roughly two miles of the expressway features of the Niagara Scenic (formerly Robert Moses) Parkway from downtown Niagara Falls to Whirlpool State/DeVeaux Woods State Park; installation of a trail network on lands reclaimed from the Parkway removal; and reconstruction of Whirlpool Street and a portion of Third Street. The environmental review for the project has been completed and approval of its preliminary design was authorized by the Federal Highway Administration on February 23, 2017. The project is now in its final design phase. Project construction is scheduled to begin in late spring of 2018.

The meeting will begin with a short welcome and orientation presentation, followed by an open house for the public to review the progress plans and renderings developed to date, ask questions, and to provide input. Staff will be on hand to explain the project, answer questions, and receive comments from the public.

Questions on the meeting should be directed to Paul Tronolone at the USA Niagara Development Corporation at 716.284.2556.
