Buffalo must improve access to outer harbor

Thanks to The News for the front-page article in the Feb. 28 newspaper. The news of extending Metro Rail to help the folks on the Medical Campus is great. As we are learning, the parking situation on the High Street corridor is bad and will be critical soon.

The map The News published also pointed out the interdependence of traffic patterns around the Miami and Chicago parking site. Just to the southwest of this site is the Michigan Street lift bridge, and farther down is the site of the bridge that went over the Buffalo Ship Canal. Replace this bridge and we will all have instant access to the outer harbor.

The politicians have talked about access endlessly for years. This is a quick fix and it should be included in this project.
