Allen Street | Buffalo, NY

Active and Complete Street | Buffalo, New York

Allen Street is located in the historic Allentown neighborhood of Buffalo, NY, a robust community with a strong artisan presence. 

This project reimagines Allen Street as a complete street with improved pedestrian edges, increased bicycle safety and clearer defined vehicular travel ways. This will improve traffic flow and overall safety of all users. 

The plan also includes articulated connections to Allen Street from Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus on the east end and the Olmstead designed Days Park on the west end. These connections will serve as clear gateways into the Allentown community and will incorporate historic interpretive and art elements
