The City of Buffalo’s Department of Public Works and the Buffalo Sewer Authority are leading an effort to transform Niagara Street. This streetscape project seeks to enhance accessibility, safety, and corridor vibrancy for all – residents, visitors, and businesses. The first step is currently under construction and involves work on the lower part of Niagara Street, from Niagara Square to Porter Avenue.
Niagara Street Now represents the next step of this effort and will tackle the remaining stretch of Niagara Street, from Porter Avenue up to Ontario Street. Further, it will involve upgrades to Robert Rich Way (formerly known as the “Foot of Ferry”) in accordance with the Broderick Park Master Plan, and make enhancements to the Seaway Trail.

Niagara Street Now is led by Watts Architecture & Engineering, with support from Stoss for landscape architecture, the UB Regional Institute for community engagement, Alta Planning + Design for bicycle infrastructure design, Frandina Engineering and Land Surveying for mapping, and Thinking Outside the Square for signage and wayfinding.
