Nearly $5 million is coming to Western New York as part of a $144.6 million statewide investment to make roads safer for bicyclists and pedestrians. 

It also aims to help air quality. 

There are two projects getting money Buffalo. The first is to help with restoration efforts of the historic iron trestle pedestrian bridge in the city of Tonawanda. 

That project will receive $1.6 million. 

The second project will be in Niagara Falls. There a $3.1 million multi-use trail will be built. It will connect to the Niagara River Greenway Trail System. 

This funding is in support of the governor's initiative to advance health across all policies in New York State.
