Work on a pedestrian and bike path connector from Allen and Main streets leading into the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus gateway has begun.
Contractor LPCiminelli has begun pouring decorative concrete on the path that will run underneath the University at Buffalo's new building for the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
About 35 percent of the work is complete, with the project to be done by late August. "It's going to be very nice and definitely will be a highlight to the project," said LPCiminelli Vice President William J. Mahoney.
Metal panels will be installed on the ceiling of the tunnel beneath the medical school, while granite will be added to the bottom of the passage's walls.
