What are the health impacts of large expressways like the Scajaquada? It would be helpful to conduct a medical, scientific study on what are the health impacts of these major expressways in Buffalo. What are these roads doing to not just our physical safety and our communities but to our overall health? If we can show that these major roadways are negatively impacting our health, then we can better advocate for alternative transportation and improved streetscapes. 

GObike Buffalo is working to build a thriving, dynamic and connected Buffalo by promoting biking, alternative transportation options, and improved streetscapes to create positive impacts on health, our environment, our streets and the overall quality of life for all residents.
