Border Road: Excavation Starts, Grand Marais Drain Culvert Being Built

Hello time traveller!!

After a long fall of demolition and removal of trees from the route of the new Windsor-Essex Parkway, excavation and engineering projects have begun to take shape along the future Border Road.

Construction crews are digging near Hearthwood Street and Highway 3 in LaSalle to build a replacement Highway 3 (as the new border road will travel approximately along the line of the current road).  The replacement road will be utilized by truck traffic while the 6-lane border highway is built and will later become the Parkway’s “Service Road”.

The view from our first photo above is facing one of the Parkway’s future tunnels, and tunnel-top parkland as depicted in this video on the W-E Parkway website.

Workers from Facca Construction are building a “three-box-culvert” to support the Parkway’s new service road over the Grand Marais Drain.
