Windsor’s old Downtown Beer Store on Wyandotte Street East is no more.

After moving to a new home at Goyeau and Elliott, the old location was demolished Monday and Tuesday to make way for improvements to the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel plaza.

City of Windsor Administrators approved a finalized design for the new plaza in March which will include a queueing area for heavy traffic.

Goyeau Street will be permanently closed between Park and Wyandotte.

The project includes:

  • new car access routes
  • new plaza buildings for Canada Border Services Agency and a tunnel maintenance building
  • additional car inspection lanes and Nexus lanes
  • landscaping
  • moving a City of Windsor Permit Parking lot to the location of the old Beer Store

Outside of the plaza work includes:

  • Closure of Goyeau Street between Park Street and Wyandotte Street (to become part of the extended plaza area)
  • Reconfigure City Hall Square to two-way traffic
  • Reconfigure Park Street to two-way traffic between Goyeau Street and City Hall Square
  • Reconfigure ‘Lot 10’ Permit Parking (southeast corner of Park Street and Goyeau Street)
  • Gateway landscaping at the main access at Goyeau Street / Wyandotte Street

Additional demolition will take place near the plaza in the coming months.
