A plan to turn the four-mile bridge connecting downtown with the south-towns into an elevated park with views of Lake Erie and the Buffalo waterfront has won a highly-contested design competition.

The "City of Lights" design has gained a pretty positive reception from residents.

The project could cost up to $600 million, according to the presentation.
As to who would pay for it, the state said 20-80% with the federal government picking up most of the tab.
