It's been in the making for a few months now, and it's finally open!  It's the all new Shoreline Trail bridge along the Niagara River.

It's part of the $60 million Peace Bridge Gateway project and the idea is to connect all the great parts of our beautiful waterfront and make it easy to pass from one to the next.

According to WBFO, the $5.2 million bridge is just part of a 6.5 mile trail that extends from Erie Basin Marina in Buffalo up to the City of Tonawanda, along the Niagara River.

Congressman Brian Higgins was a part of securing $15 million to help make this project a reality and he was there to celebrate the opening of the bridge on Tuesday.

"We're trying to make connections between all these waterfront destinations so they're unfettered, so you have unobstructed access along the waterfront corridor that includes Canalside, the lake and both the Niagara and Buffalo Rivers," - Congressman Brian Higgins
