Looks like Pine Avenue will stay dim for a while longer. Niagara Falls officials met with Pine Avenue business owners on Wednesday to provide an update on the installation of 72 new light poles on one of the city's busiest streets, but the news wasn't good.
A National Grid representative told officials it might be another six months before the company finds a designer for the lighting pole project. Then, it'll likely take another four months to write the construction work order to start the project.
The city saved money on the project by working with National Grid, but mayor Paul Dyster said Wednesday that now the city's at the company's mercy.
