Niagara gateway project sparking interest

Yonas Ghirmatzion, owner of the food mart gas station at 211 Niagara St., discusses the Niagara Street gateway construction project, business owner involvement in the process and the excitement it has sparked with customers.  The renovations will include new green infrastructure, sidewalks, traffic signals, ramps, LED street lighting and Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority bus priority.  The $16.3 million project to rehabilitate Niagara Street was announced last August and is slated for completion by 2017.
