In recent years, the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority has undertaken a number of green initiatives to help reduce the organization’s environmental imprint, while providing a more sustainable border crossing for local residents and travelers.
This effort has included various activities to reduce energy consumption, manage stormwater runoff, limit vehicle idling and enforce applicable idling laws, dialogue with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on best port practices, encourage green transportation alternatives at the crossing (bicycles), conduct tree plantings and adjacent parkland cleanups, improve design codes for new construction, as well as embrace and promote expedited traveler crossing technologies.
