TUESDAY TALKS: Mayor discusses potential of the new Intermodal Transportation Center

Niagara Gazette — The city will soon break ground on a major infrastructure project that has been a topic of discussion for decades.

Scrufari Construction, a century-old Niagara Falls company, will begin work next month on the $40 million Niagara Falls Intermodal Transportation Center, a project that was first kicked around in the mid 1980's.

The city council approved a $22.7 million contract with the construction company at its meeting Monday night, along with several other measures that will see the final phase of the project set in motion.

The work - at the site of the historic U.S. Customhouse near the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge Plaza -  is largely reimbursable through state and federal grants and is expected to be completed by early 2016.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
