Connection upgrade

Frederick B. Durkee Memorial Bridge will get repairs


Tonawanda News — “The issue of environmental contamination, that’s on the big list for somebody to come in and take on,” he said. “But right now in terms of bringing new development to the island, with all the potential that it has, having the bridge intact is obviously step one in bringing interest over to see it.” 

Zimmerman said that widening of the bridge would be viewed in the future, should any large-scale development plans move forward. 

“If we can get the redevelopment to full capacity the bridge will be expanded,” he said.
