Buffalo, NY – A two-mile stretch of South Park Avenue in Buffalo will under go a major renovation.

City, County, State and Federal leaders announced that $2.3 million will be provided to make significant improvements. Erie County Legislator Timothy Kennedy says it has taken three years to secure funding for the project.

Leaders say they plan is to create one of the best streets in the region. Kennedy says the project will include new sidewalks, landscaping, lighting and crosswalks.

The project will run from the Lackawanna line to the South Park, Bailey Avenue join. Construction is set to begin in the fall of 2009.
