Public invited to participate on Feb. 6 

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced a public meeting will kick off the scoping process for phase three of the removal of the Niagara Scenic Parkway, between Findlay Drive in the City of Niagara Falls and Center Street in the Village of Lewiston.

The public meeting will be held Tuesday, Feb. 6, in the Castellani Building at DeVeaux Woods State Park, 3160 DeVeaux Woods Drive, Niagara Falls. Project displays, maps and staff will be available beginning at 5:30 p.m., with a presentation taking place at 6:30 p.m.

The scoping process, which will be led by Bergmann (which has joined Colliers Engineering & Design), will consider broad alternatives for creating a sensitively configured transportation network along the Niagara Gorge, and will include traffic studies, environmental review, development of design alternatives and public engagement. The entire scoping and preliminary design process is expected to wrap up by August 2025.

While New York State Parks will be the lead agency, the City of Niagara Falls, the Town and Village of Lewiston, the New York State Department of Transportation, USA Niagara and the New York Power Authority will serve as partners.
