Nearly three months since Goyeau Avenue closed between Wyandotte and Park, Windsor’s new tunnel plaza is really starting to take shape.

Construction crews have built a new parking lot where the old road stood, have installed decorative lamp posts, are building a new maintenance building and are preparing to build other elements of the plaza.

The new plaza will include a queueing area when traffic wait volumes increase and an entirely landscaped area.

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
