Beginning this week the City has commenced the Downtown Placemaking Project. This project is funded through Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Smart Growth Community Fund, administered by Empire State Development, and will have a transformative impact on Downtown North Tonawanda. Project components include: new curb bump-outs and street trees on Webster Street, new curbs and greenspace along Main Street, an expansion and realignment of Charles Fleischmann Park, and new wayfinding signage.

The construction schedule for this project is March 25th – July 17th. During the construction period traffic patterns will be altered in downtown as follows: Main Street will be one-way to the north, Webster Street will be one-way to the south, Goundry Street will be one-way to the west, and Tremont Street will be one-way to the east. Periodic sidewalk closures will also occur to accommodate construction.

During this unprecedented time, construction is considered an essential service and as such the City is moving forward with most construction projects as previously scheduled. The City of North Tonawanda is following all guidance and regulations issued by the State of New York in order to try to minimize the spread of Covid-19 and ensure public health and safety.

If you have any questions or would like any additional information on this project please contact Michael Zimmerman, Director of Community Development, at 716-695-8580 x5515 or
