Here is my entry in the “Contest to rethink the Skyway.”
The Buffalo Skyway is a thing of engineering beauty. We should cherish it and keep it in good repair at all times. Its current facelift seems to be going quite well both as to keeping the traffic moving and as to the intermediate results.
From no other vantage can one admire the curvature of the earth or the storms moving up and down the lake or the beautiful lake shores. Coupled with the fact that it moves huge volumes of traffic both ways every day of the year in an unusually efficient manner should make us proud of the Skyway and protect it as one of the city’s greatest assets.
