Investigative Post: Man O' Trees delays another city project
With massive economic development growth expected at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, it will be key to create a proper street flow along Ellicott Street. But a redevelopment project has hit a major delay.
A contractor with a track record of incomplete local projects is to blame. Man O' Trees has also failed to complete the Martin Luther King splash pad and a major reconstruction project in Niagara Falls.
WBFO'S Eileen Buckley talked with Investigative Post reporter Dan Telvock. He says Ellicott streetscape work to create a linear park has received 80-percent of its funding from the federal government. Telvock says the city hired Man O' Trees.
