Update on Ring Roads

By May 31, 2023August 17th, 2023No Comments
Delaware Park Ring Road


As a public-private partner, the Conservancy conducted a public survey on the future of ring road.

The results of that survey were shared with the City of Buffalo for their analysis and subsequently the Common Council voted to keep the ring roads in Delaware Park and South Park closed. The Conservancy and the City are working collaboratively with local experts to address the community’s comments and questions expressed in the survey.
