BUFFALO (WBEN) - Construction work has officially begun on the Buffalo Heritage Carousel.

"This is going to be yet another attraction to create the synergy that now exists," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "Just speaking to representatives of Explore & More, they've had 1,700 zip codes represented - that's people from all over the country, Canada, elsewhere - that are now discovering that museum, but wait till next summer when we have the opportunity to open up this brand new family attraction. The best is yet to come."

Listen to Hochul's full comments below:

State Assemblyman Sean Ryan thanked the visionaries of Canalside for having the ability to see something in Buffalo's Waterfront that most other people couldn't.

"We're seeing implemented a real people-centric vision where we're going to be able to use Canalside like it's our back porch," he said.

The carousel is expected to open at some point in the summer of 2020.
