BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- The section of Main Street in Downtown Buffalo has been closed to traffic for decades, though recent talks have suggested reopening that section to bring more people downtown.

So is a return of traffic to Main Street downtown a possibility? Watch the Eyewitness News Special 'Motoring on Main' for the full story.
