Install a fishing pier near former toll plaza

I’d like to see the old Black Rock toll plaza on the Niagara Thruway turned into a fishing pier. There already are hook-ups for toilets and lights. Put in a short wooden pier for fishermen and make sure it’s wheelchair accessible.

A tunnel or foot bridge could be built under or over the Thruway to allow people to walk in from Niagara Street. Have a security camera and police call box on the pier.

I think this would be a huge asset to the West Side of Buffalo.
