Mayor Brown Announces Reconstruction Of Delaware Park Ring Road

Contact: Peter K. Cutler 

Popular Outdoor Recreation and Access Road to be Stripped and Repaved

Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced that the city will reconstruct the popular Delaware Park Ring Road, which is expected to be completed in approximately 2-3 weeks.

“Delaware Park is one of the city’s most popular outdoor recreation locations and the 1.8 mile Ring Road is heavily used by joggers, walkers, cyclists and anyone wishing to access the park,” said Mayor Brown. “Approximately half of the road is open to vehicular traffic as well, so the wear and tear of cars, trucks and other vehicles has also had an impact on the condition of the road. By stripping the existing road and repaving it, all park users will see a far better condition than what they’ve experienced in recent years.”

The city, through its capital funds, will finance the entire $578,500 project, which will be conducted by Destro & Brothers Concrete Company, Inc.

Since 2006, Mayor Brown has invested over $14 million in the city parks system, including over $6.5 million in capital projects throughout the Olmsted-designed parks. In addition, the Mayor directed an additional $359,000 to the Olmsted Parks to support post-2006 October Surprise Storm clean-up and restoration efforts.

“I have always said the our residents’ quality of life is my administration’s highest priority and the investments that we have made in our city parks – Olmsted and non-Olmsted parks – reinforces my commitment to ensure that every resident of Buffalo, as well as our visitors, enjoy one of the greatest parks systems in the country,” said Mayor Brown.
