Kenmore Avenue Reconstruction Project
The City of Buffalo and Erie County are progressing the design for the reconstruction of Kenmore Avenue between Main Street and Starin Avenue in the City of Buffalo, NY. Kenmore Avenue (CR 307) travels from Grand Island Boulevard (NYS Route 324) at its western terminus to Main Street (NYS Route 5) at its eastern terminus and is 5.5 miles long. The portion between Main Street and Starin Avenue is the first phase of the reconstruction project, and is 1.3 miles long.
The Parker-Fries Sewer Improvement Project is a major construction project in eastern Tonawanda, New York. Starting in Summer 2010 and during the next 18 to 24 months, the Parker-Fries Interceptor will be replaced.
Brownfield Opportunity Area
The Brownfield Opportunity Areas Program, made possible by the Superfund/Brownfield law in October 2003, provides municipalities and community based organizations with assistance, up to 90 percent of the eligible project costs, to complete revitalization plans and implementation strategies for areas or communities affected by the presence of brownfield sites, and site assessments for strategic brownfield sites. The program in New York is administered the Department of State with guidance from the Department of Environmental Conservation.
The Town of Tonawanda has qualified a region as a Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) and is participating in the program stages. Please learn more about the town's current BOA activities.
