Future Construction Along The Niagara River Slip And Fall - North Tonawanda

A recent proposal put forward by the Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council introduced two plans to improve pedestrian travel around North Tonawanda, New York. The first details steps to repair the Iron Trestle pedestrian bridge spanning the Erie Canal. The Iron Trestle Bridge, utilized by pedestrians and bikers alike, serves as a connection between two major trails in North Tonawanda, New York, and funnels traffic away from the roads allowing for a safer path for pedestrians.
