Niagara Gazette — n Alternative 6, which eliminates the parkway completely between Main Street and Center Street in Lewiston, with limited park access to Devil’s Hole State Park from Findlay Drive. The parkway would remain open from Lewiston to Porter. Parkway removal advocates have long pushed for elimination of the roadway from the Falls to Lewiston. Soluri and other supporters of maintaining the parkway have endorsed option three. Dan Davis, a member of Citizens for Waterfront Action, also believes the third option would be the best choice. Davis believes economic opportunity and impact is the driving force behind the decision state parks should be making. “I keep complaining about the scoping process ... because (removing) Main to Findlay Drive was part of 2009 application for federal funding,” he said via email. “Parkway removal and reconnection to the city’s waterfront is one of the main goals of the city’s comprehensive plan and is the part of the parkway we should all be concerned with.” Meanwhile, funding whichever option is selected could come down to the efforts of Congressman Brian Higgins, D-Buffalo. Last month, Higgins called for the power authority to finance the removal of portions of the parkway’s north and south sections and announced he’d seek upwards of $120 million from the authority to do so. State parks declined comment for this story.
