Assemblyman Sean Ryan announced today that the state Department of Transportation is broadening its modeling to look at reducing the Scajaquada Expressway speed limit to 30 mph through Delaware Park. The new review also would consider converting that portion of the roadway into a city street.
The study of new options for downgrading the Scajaquada corridor where it bisects the park answers calls made during a public forum two weeks ago at SUNY Buffalo State.
“The public clearly stated at our recent meeting that they wanted to see data that explored further downgrade options,” Ryan, a Buffalo Democrat, said in a prepared statement today.
“I am pleased that the DOT is actively listening to the public, and is willing to study the impact of reducing the speed of the Scajaquada to 30 miles per hour, and converting the expressway into a city street,” Ryan added.
