The Detroit River Target Fireworks are tonight, but don’t expect to drive right up to them! The City of Windsor has laid out a detailed map of street closures and detours downtown and along the riverfront for this evening. All roads in red on the map below will be closed after 6pm.
Riverside Drive will be closed completely from Crawford Avenue to Parent Avenue. Residential access will be permitted on Riverside Drive from Huron Church Road to Crawford Avenue and from Parent Avenue to Gladstone Avenue. Northbound streets that join with Riverside Drive will be restricted to residential access to the intersection located one block to the south of Riverside Drive. Police advise that residents should be prepared to present identification verifying their address if entering the restricted area after 6pm.
Ouellette Avenue will be closed from Riverside Drive to Elliott Street. A number of streets in the downtown core will be closed or restricted between Riverside Drive to the north and Wyandotte Steet to the south and between Victoria Ave. to the west and McDougall Street to the east. Access to the Pelissier St. parking garage will be open and access to Caesars Windsor will be open via Glengarry Avenue and Aylmer Road.
All City Buses are FREE after 6pm. Take the Crosstown 2 if you want to arrive on Wyandotte, or the Transway 1C to arrive directly at the bus depot. Your best bet may be to take a free shuttle from Devonshire Mall, sponsored by the area’s Zehrs: Great Food stores. Shuttle service starts at 6pm.
