NIAGARA FALLS, NY - It was the beginning of the end Monday for a whole lot of work to fix up Niagara Falls State Park.

State crews started the final phase of work on the project that's been going on since 2011.

This work is focused on rebuilding the parts of Prospect Street that run up against the park, to better connect it with the rest of the city.

There will be some detours posted for pedestrians during the work, and it should all be done by the end of the year.
