Robert Moses Parkway Project Gets $10M from State



Niagara Falls, NY (WBEN) The Robert Moses Parkway Project is getting help from Albany. Governor Cuomo announced the state will give $10 million toward the conversion of the roadway.
“The Robert Moses Parkway is an outdated impediment to the growth of the City of Niagara Falls, as well as tourism opportunities in the city’s urban core,” said Governor Cuomo.  “I am pleased that New York State, through the Buffalo Billion initiative, is continuing to invest state resources to leverage tens of millions of dollars in private investment to boost the economy and create jobs.  This public infrastructure investment will help the city’s tourism business by routing traffic through the city instead of bypassing it.”
 
The State of New York, through the Buffalo Billion initiative will invest $10 million dollars to remove the limited-access expressway that currently exists and replace it with an at-grade parkway that will reunite downtown Niagara Falls with its most valuable and famous asset the Falls, along with one of the State’s and Nation’s most visited parks, a destination second only to New York City in attracting Empire State tourists.
