BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Behind the scenes of the Peace Bridge has been anything but peaceful lately.
Proposed improvements on the New York side of the international span have divided the American and Canadian members of the binational board that oversees it.
A 5-5 deadlock stalled action at its latest meeting Friday, putting projects in limbo.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration is pushing for an expanded plaza on the Buffalo side of the bridge, which links Buffalo and Fort Erie, Ontario.
Cuomo allies last week proposed legislation in Albany to dissolve the Peace Bridge Authority, saying it is no longer a functioning body.
The board is scheduled to meet again June 28.
