In the City of Buffalo, the Niagara Street Gateway project is a rehabilitation of Niagara Street, between S. Elmwood and Porter Avenues. The City's current plans call for the addition of conventional bike lanes to the street, which is a great start. It should do more to propel Buffalo among the most bike friendly cities in the country.
In order to make Niagara Street even more bike friendly, additional features should be incorporated into the design. For example, the City should incorporate design features such as buffered bike lanes, cycle tracks, bike boxes, intersection crossing markings, or bicycle traffic signals. You can learn more about these types of features at the National Association of City Transportation Officials' website (http://nacto.org/cities-for-cycling/design-guide/)
