      Painstaking work finally nears completion on recreating streets in Erie Canal Harbor

      Canal District streets an unfortunate farce slammed by expert; politcos, bureaucrats repeat falsehoods
      http://greaterbuffalo.blogs.com/

      The October 30, 2010 Buffalo News has a story on the construction of new streets in the Canal District. The streets use some material salvaged from the destruction of the historic streets at the site last year, but are otherwise totally new: the run on different tangents to the original street network, the are either much narrower (Prime Street) or broader (Hanover Street) than they were before, they have modern turning radii to accommodate tractor-trailers, they are starkly defined by modern polished granite curbing-the list goes on.
