Scajaquada Corridor Coalition sets public meeting Wednesday

The Scajaquada Corridor Coalition, a group of organizations working to address traffic problems involving the Scajaquada Expressway, will hold a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Buffalo History Museum, 25 Nottingham Court.

The group hopes to gauge community interest in long-term plans to remove the expressway from the Delaware Park area. The meeting will include the history of the expressway, the short-term fixes and the long-term possibilities, organizers said.

The meeting comes after news of temporary changes that will be made to the roadway, including pedestrian crossings, narrower traffic lanes and permanent guide rails. These changes will be made later this month, following the death of a 3-year-old boy who was killed in May when a car went off the expressway and into Delaware Park.

The coalition also will organize committees to communicate with government officials, organize events, provide publicity and review future designs.

Members of the coalition include: the Western New York Environmental Alliance, Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Parkside Community Association, GObike Buffalo and Parents for a Safe Delaware Park.
