Buffalo Breakwall Project Starts

Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced the start of construction work on the small boat harbor breakwall and southern revetment, which is the next phase of the multi-million dollar transformation of Buffalo Harbor State Park.

The $3.76 million breakwall and revetment redesign is phase two of the $15 million in improvements provided through the Governor‘s Buffalo Billion and NY Parks 2020 initiatives to completely reinvigorate the Buffalo Harbor waterfront.

This is an important milestone in Buffalo’s revitalization, one that will expand outdoor access to the waterfront and bring recreational and investment opportunities to the region, “said Governor Cuomo.

The rehabilitated breakwall will be stabilized, the southern revetment will also be rehabilitated and like the breakwall, will be stabilized and feature increased fishing access.

The southern revetment is expected to be complete by summer 2016, and the breakwall by fall 2016.
