Buffalo’s Outer Harbor To Get Federal Funding
Buffalo Outer Harbor is set to get an injection of federal money to update and renovate the infrastructure.
Congressman Brian Higgins announced yesterday that $12 million of Federal Funding will be coming from Washington to help fix the Outer Harbor's infrastructure.
A majority of the 12 million dollars will be used to pay for repairs to the breakwalls to ensure safety for development along the waterfront.
One of the major issues is a breakwall that hasn't had any major repairs for about sixty years and has a thousand foot gap in it.
Work on the Outer Harbor is expected to start in the spring and should be completed by 2020.
