The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority and the NYS Department of Transportation have scheduled a series of six open houses in Buffalo and Fort Erie to update the public on proposals and design concepts for the construction of a new U.S. Department of Homeland Security Plaza and a new, companion bridge spanning the Niagara River between Buffalo, New York and Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada.
The upcoming public meetings, which will be conducted as informational open houses, will provide details of those bridge designs and updated proposals for the border crossing plaza and other area improvements. The sessions also will give the public opportunities to share their preferences and concerns with the project team.
