Construction Watch: Downtown Streetscape Work

An $8 million streetscape project along Chippewa, Franklin and Court streets is well underway. Work includes 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 to accommodate increased outdoor activity along the street.


Benches, plantings, and other amenities are also planned.

Infrastructure work on Court Street is anticipated to begin once the majority of construction is complete on Chippewa and Franklin, either late this year or in early 2022.

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.

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.
