Buffalo Rising: Front Park, Lafayette Tap Room and Powder Keg Fest

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – Congressman Brian Higgins and the Peace Bridge Authority are proposing a tunnel to connect the Peace Bridge with the Niagara section of the Thruway, eliminating a ramp which currently scars Front Park. While it was all smiles at a news conference last week, controversy continues to swirl around the Peace Bridge proposal, especially its impact on the nearby neighborhood.

Buffalo Rising's Elena Cala Buscarino and Newell Nussbaumer join WBFO's Mark Scott for the Buffalo Rising Roundtable. Elena says she's somewhat skeptical of the tunnel plan.
