A plan to replace the Elmwood Avenue Bridge over the Scajaquada Expressway and the Scajaquada Creek is the topic of a public meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 18, the state Department of Transportation announced today.

The proposed project would include options incorporating “aesthetic treatments to enhance the scenic beauty of nearby Delaware Park and surrounding green space areas,” a DOT statement read.

Sidewalks across the bridge would be widened under the plan to make them more accessible to bicycles and pedestrians. The plan also would include a wider shoulder on Elmwood and improving the intersection of Elmwood and Nottingham Terrace.

The information session will be held at SUNY Buffalo State College in the Bulger Communications Center, 1300 Elmwood Avenue in the city of Buffalo.
