Parkside/Linden Intersection Healthy Streets Initiative Survey - Winter 2023
In 2021, GObike Buffalo partnered with the Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) and Erie County Walkability Action Institute (ECWAI) to conduct a study identifying areas in the City of Buffalo that could most benefit from improved accessibility and walkability for area residents. The team identified the intersection of Parkside and Linden Avenues as their collaborative choice for the demonstration project.
This project will address the existing lack of ADA accessibility at intersections, and will also address the substandard sidewalks along Parkside Avenue, and overly wide vehicular traffic lanes. The project also aims to add buffered and protected multi-use pathways and temporary ADA curb ramps connecting to existing sidewalks, protections at the intersection for bicycles, crosswalks, and stop lines.
Before these changes can be implemented, we would like to hear from neighborhood experts - the Parkside/Linden community members themselves - about your opinions of this roadway as it exists, by responding to the questions below:
