BUFFALO, N.Y. — A $50,000 feasibility study funded by the City of Buffalo will be the next step forward with the long-talked-about Buffalo Riverwalk.
The proposed trail, between the Michigan and Ohio street lift bridges, would make it easier for bicyclists and walkers to get from Canalside to the Outer Harbor.
"It will bring people from all across the City of Buffalo through downtown, to the Inner Harbor to the Outer Harbor," Buffalo Common Council member Chris Scanlon said. "And also, people with all abilities, whether they want to run walk bike, people with physical or even economic hardships, they'll be able to get out to our Outer Harbor and visit our greatest asset."
Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper says it's working with private landowners in the study since the proposed trail would include some of its property.
