Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Tuesday announced the completion of a new, multi-use trail adjacent to the Michigan slip that connects the Greenbelt Public Pathway with the trail along Fuhrmann Boulevard.
The Outer Harbor pathway creates a safe avenue for pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as points of access for fishermen and potential commercial watercraft.
“Buffalo’s Outer Harbor is a tremendous scenic location in Western New York, and this new pathway offers another opportunity to experience it firsthand,” Cuomo said. “This project adds to what is already a great destination for tourism and recreation as well as an economic engine for the region, and I look forward to seeing it enjoyed by visitors and residents alike for years to come.”
Funding for the 12-foot-wide multi-use path was provided by New York Power Authority Re-Licensing Agreement. The pathway continues the design and feel of the current Greenbelt Pathway that offers picturesque waterfront views.
