Out to Bid: Downtown Streetscape Project

Stretches of Franklin, Court and (finally) Chippewa Street will have a new look under a project the City has put out to bid. The expected $5 million contract will include Court Street from Niagara Square to Main Street, Franklin Street from Court to Chippewa Street, and Chippewa Street from Main Street to S. Elmwood Avenue.

Work will include milling and inlay of the roadway, striping including bike lanes where feasible, LED street lights, new traffic signals, sidewalk replacement, curb extensions/bump-outs, audible pedestrian signals, bike racks, 35 new street trees, and on Chippewa, decorative festoon lights strung lightpole to lightpole.

Watts Architecture and Engineering worked on the construction plans under the direction of the Buffalo Urban Development Corporation and the Department of Public Works, Parks and Streets. Bids are due July 22.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
