Protesting Route 5 in Buffalo

Local television station covers the Route 5/Skyway construction and protests by local residents who are demanding more of the NYSDOT.


Look at that DOT video -- all that concrete!

The DOT's contention that 40,000 cars and trucks can't move at a reasonable speed on an at-grade boulevard amounts to very bad advice at taxpayer expense -- there is simply no reason that Buffalo's waterfront must be conceived of as a raceway for commuters, with a token landscaped frontage road running alongside it.

Excellent leadership by local citizens and Councilman Mickey Kearns who correctly identifies the DOT's vision as owing more to Robert Moses than Olmsted!
