Optimism high for new Buffalo Harbor Bridge

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – A Buffalo Harbor Bridge, connecting downtown with the waterfront's outer harbor, could be a reality by the year 2015, according to experts.

The Buffalo News is reporting that Representative Brian Higgins is promoting the bridge as a major component of waterfront development. The Harbor Bridge could also lead to the future elimination of the Skyway. The search for funding, design, and location is underway.

The hope is that federal funding in the 2011 budget will support the project.
