An Environmental Study Report report for improvements to capacity and operations at the Canadian Plaza of the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel is now complete and ready for public input.
Some of the key recommendations in the Plan are main plaza access maintained at current Goyeau Street/Wyandotte Street location. New dedicated NEXUS/bus lane with access from City Hall Square, and one additional NEXUS/NEXPRESS lane.
Also included in the plan is a new Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) Commercial Building and a new Detroit Windsor Tunnel maintenance building with landscaping throughout the plaza including a vegetative barrier along the east side of the Plaza.
Some changes you will notice on City Streets are the closure of Goyeau Street between Park Street and Wyandotte Street, reconfigured City Hall Square to 2-way traffic. reconfigure Park Street to 2-way traffic between Goyeau Street and City Hall Square. Reconfigure ‘Lot 10’ Permit Parking and a new Permit Parking lot in the northwest quadrant of the Wyandotte Street and Windsor Avenue intersection and gateway landscaping at the main access at Goyeau Street/Wyandotte Street.
This ESR will be available for a 45-day public and agency review period from December 17, 2010 to January 31, 2011 and can be viewed online here
