The City of Windsor is set to continue its work on the beautification of key gateways leading into the City.  On Monday, work began on Howard Avenue from Grand Marais to just south of the EC ROW express way.  Work on Howard Avenue includes new medians with colored concrete and artificial turf, realigned accessible sidewalks, decorative retaining walls, and tree plantings.

As well, over on Dougall Avenue new retaining walls will be built at the expressway entrances and exits.  This work will complete the complete transformation of the Dougall gateway which was started in 2008 and continued in 2009.  That work  included a new bike path that runs on the west side of the roadway between South Cameron and West Grand Boulevard, four freshly paved lanes, pink concrete medians with planting beds,  extensive plantings to the hills, and the addition of 600 trees at the clover off ramp of EC Row Expressway.

The highlight of the Dougall Road Streetscape has been the addition of hundreds and hundreds of Christmas lights during the Christmas season.

The beautification budget for both Howard and Dougall Avenues is $1.7 million over 2009-2010. It is funded by the City of Windsor as part of its capital budget.

The work is expected to take about a month and a half to complete and may result in some lane closures.
