The Scajaquada through Delaware Park will get some more construction before the snow settles in.
The work includes the installation of two traffic signals for pedestrians and a new guard rail to replace the present railing that was quickly erected following a fatal accident earlier this year.
However, visitors to a public forum were told last night permanent changes to the road are years away. A final design might not be ready until 2018.
"I think it's taking too long for a resolution," said Dana Pryor-Moncrieffe.
"I've been living in Buffalo all my life and I know they have been working on this for a very long time. When I was in high school actually interned at the Parks Department and I know it was being discussed at that time."
Pryor-Moncrieffe's youngest child is now 16, so from her Agassiz Circle home she can look on a road which she says needs work.
State DOT officials says the speed limit will stay at 30 mph although a new traffic study says everyone is going faster, some much faster.
