Parkside Avenue near Florence Avenue will be narrowed in an effort to calm traffic following a federal grant award of $450,000.

The grant awarded to Buffalo will be used to realign the roadway to soften a double curve. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2015. The road will be narrowed, shortening the distance for pedestrians to cross. Additional streetlights also will be installed, and signs and countdown timers will be relocated to accommodate the realigned roadway.

Bailey Avenue near Delevan Avenue also will be improved, with construction beginning in the fall of 2015. The city won a $108,000 federal grant for Bailey, which will fund improved roadway layout, signs and striping, as well as improve signal timing, countdown timers, accessible ramps and other pedestrian amenities.
