Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick sponsored legislation in the County Legislature that supports Senator Chris Jacobs’ proposal to share 10 percent of the revenue from the Grand Island tollbooths with the communities of Grand Island, Town of Tonawanda and Niagara Falls.


“We all hear the daily traffic reports, ‘big backups at the Grand Island Bridges.’ Not only does this make for a nightmare of a commute, it increases noise and air pollution for that region. The tolls have a significant negative impact on the residents of Grand Island, Niagara Falls and the Town of Tonawanda, and as such, I believe should benefit from the tolls collected. I want to thank Senator Jacobs for pushing this bill forward, proposing that 10 percent of the $20 million collected annually is given to those three communities,” said Legislator Hardwick, who also is calling on Albany to install a high-speed cashless toll system at the bridges to move vehicles through faster.


The Legislature voted 11-0 on Legislator Hardwick’s resolution at the June 22, 2017 session.
