Pine Avenue light work continues

Niagara Gazette — The contractor is nearly finished with one side of the street and will soon be moving to the other.

That’s the latest update from the city’s engineering office on a Pine Avenue lighting project that has been in the works for months.

In response to questions from city lawmakers this week, Niagara Falls civil engineer Robert Buzzelli said the traffic installation project in the 2200 block of Pine Avenue is progressing despite outward appearances by passers-by. 

In recent weeks, construction work and vehicles have narrowed traffic in front of the Como Restaurant down to a single lane at the job site. The contractor, South Buffalo Electric, Inc., is in the process of digging a trench across Pine Avenue as part of the installation. The company’s work has been concentrated on the lane nearest to the restaurant’s front entrance.

Buzzelli said the contractor is expected by today, to “flip traffic to the opposite of the road” as part of the ongoing effort to get the job done. 

Council members called for the installation of the traffic signal in response to a series of high-profile pedestrian-vehicle accidents in the area.

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.
