Real Progress on the Peace Bridge

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s 2,000 member employers recognize and appreciate the real progress towards the Peace Bridge U.S. Plaza Renovation project with the recent announcement of the U.S.A.– Canada agreement on commercial pre-inspection, the commencement of the demolition of vacant properties on Busti Avenue, and unveiling a plan to create new entry and exit ramps for the bridge.  These are the first real steps taken towards a project which has been decades in the making, and we thus applaud the progress and thank Governor Andrew Cuomo for his leadership on finally making the project, especially the exit and entry ramps, a reality.
