BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) announced that it will open its 1,005 slip marina on May 1, two weeks ahead of the anticipated schedule.

The Fuhrmann Boulevard boat harbor is located three miles south of Downtown Buffalo, and will be opening to accommodate slip holders looking to get an early start at docking or launching their boats at the marina.

The harbor usually opens on May 15, and this year is the first it has opened ahead of schedule.

During the off-season, a number of refurbishing and rebuilding projects were completed at the harbor.

Slip rentals are still available for this boating season, and more information can be found here.
