BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - One of Downtown Buffalo's newest development projects has hit a snag with the city.

Construction has been temporarily stopped at Buffalo Riverworks, the outdoor hockey rink and entertainment complex along the Buffalo River.

The Department of Public Works wants more information on how the project will impact traffic safety, specifically when large scale events are held and parking becomes an issue.

The Labatt Pond Hockey Tournament is scheduled to take place at the location next month.
