It seems to me that East Amherst and Clarence are getting really crowded. Do you think upscale development will continue farther into Clarence or will it focus elsewhere?

Exactly. It can take me 25 minutes to get from Depew to Maple rd on Transit. At what point will transit reach its saturation point? I think it's already there

That's because they have not built a new expressway since 1970.


The Outer Loop Expressway, The Lancaster Expressway, The Beltline Freeway, were never built
and the Kensington Expressway stopped at the Airport

I say thank God for that. All we need is more infrastructure we can't afford.

The Lockport Expressway was built after 1970.

It's more of on/exit ramp than a Expressway, and it was never completed or made it to Lockport

Casey22/TanLegs, the Lockport Expressway is 6.5 miles long not really an on/exit ramp. It goes through the University and provides easier access to/from there. I know you can't resist an opportunity to trash Buffalo. The traffic problems on Transit and Niagara Falls Blvd have more to do with poor planning. Transit is the border of Clarence and Amherst and Niagara Falls Blvd is the border of Amherst and Tonawanda and the towns do not have a common plan for development and traffic. Unabated growth with no zoning constraints equals traffic problems. The area has more than enough expressways.
