Today, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will release the first $1,616,000 of a $15 million TIGER grant to upgrade transportation and automobile access to downtown Buffalo’s Main Street. Specifically, this funding will be used to complete planning and design on the project to return cars to the 500 Block of Main St., and is the first installment of a $15 million grant that Schumer helped to secure for the City in December of 2011. The remaining $13,384,000 in funding will be obligated once the project reaches the construction phase. By securing the release of the first phase of this funding, the City can recoup the roughly $400,000 they have already spent on design and continue to move forward with this critical project.
