Ellicott Street is a Good Example to Follow

After reading the email from Noah Rothschild this morning, discussing the need for not only a better traffic signal plan in downtown Buffalo, but also for fewer one-way streets, I was reminded that the Medical Campus recently saw its traffic patterns upgraded. Ellicott Street has finally been converted from a one-way to a two-way street, making it easier to get from Point A to Point B without having to drive in circles attempting to navigate as you go.

Not only is Ellicott Street, from Goodell to Best, two-way, but also intersecting streets such as North Oak have been upgraded from the abysmal state that they were once in. Combined with the new linear park-scape that straddles Ellicott, and bike-friendly amenities that include a handy storage locker, this section of the Medical Campus has come a long way. It’s clean, easy to navigate for car drivers (turning arrows onto street) and is pedestrian (crosswalks) and bike friendly (sharrows) too.
