NT pursues Meadow project


Tonawanda News — Once grant and other funding is deducted, the city is left with about 20 percent of the cost — though City Engineer Dale Marshall said state aid will be applied to cover most of that figure.

Most significantly, the project is hoped to alleviate east/west traffic though the city and connect a large residential area to the growing mid-city business district containing much of the municipality’s service and retail presence.

The project has been stuck in limbo in the last year or so, even as the city pressed past obstacles including land acquisition and the lifting of a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation wetland designation on land slated for the project.

Marshall said acquiring the last parcel could hold up the project by about a month, though he plans to begin work in March with an approximate 90-day work period that would wrap up the extension by June. 

“It will be built in 2013, there’s no doubt about it,” he said.
