At least two members of the Buffalo Common Council support raising the speed limit on the 198 Scajaquada Expressway.

WKBW reports, "Common Councilmembers Joe Golombek and Joel Feroleto have also filed a resolution asking New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to implement a nationwide redesign competition to redesign the Kensington (Route 33) and Scajaquada (Route 198) Expressways, similar to the Skyway redesign competition."

Most recently, Joel Giambra has lead a petition to raise the limit from 30 mph to 55 mph on portions of the roadway.
