Construct bike path to connect beaches

As a resident of Hamburg, I notice that we are separated from the great bike trails of the outer harbor and the Buffalo waterfront by a short section of Route 5 through Lackawanna.

As the former Bethlehem Steel site gets developed, it seems a no-brainer that a bike path needs to be included to connect Gallagher Beach to Woodlawn Beach. Currently the bike route follows South Park Avenue and forces the rider to go inland and avoid this waterfront section.

Please advocate for this as the next section of the interconnected bike paths around the city. A rider would then be able to ride from Woodlawn to Niagara Falls and beyond.
