The 198 also known as Scajaquada Expressway landed on the list of worst highways in 2021 for its negative impact on Delaware Park and the community around it.
The park which was designed by Frederick Olmsted in the late 1800s had portions of the park destroyed when the Sacjaquada was constructed in 1962. Since then noise level from the traffic has been a major complaint by the citizens of Buffalo.
A new proposed plan for the 198 was shared on Twitter and the plan makes the whole area look amazing.
The changes will also make the area safer. Back in 2015, The 198 was also the scene of a deadly crash that lead several local groups to form the Scajaquada Corridor Coalition to get work done to improve safety along the highway and around Delaware Park.
Members of the community are hoping that lawmakers will soon make a decision on improving the condition and the area around the 198.
