Aug. 22, 1969: Peace Bridge roadwork makes for dangerous driving

Over a year’s worth of delays and dangerous traffic patterns were promised as the Thruway Authority overhauled the Peace Bridge/Busti Avenue/Niagara Street interchange on the I-190 northbound.

"Thruway zig-zag at Peace Bridge to last until 1970"

"The obstacle course in the northbound lane of the Niagara Section of the Thruway will remain, with minor modifications, until Dec. 30, 1970, Norman W. Krapf, district engineer for the State Transportation Department, said today."
