Construction is moving along at a steady pace to finish the redesign and paving of Wyandotte Street West before University begins in September.
Crews have nearly finished installing new underground utilities such as watermains and sewers and are moving on to the creation of decorative flower boxes, the relocation of hydro poles to the north side of the road and are preparing to build curbs for the radically narrower street re-design.
Streetscaping includes extended sidewalks, reduced on-street parking, “nodes” on street corners to help bring identity to the area, new “argyle” patterned sidewalk lights, several sidewalk trees inside raised planters, decorative benches that will match the architectural elements of the University of Windsor, “leaning rails” for people waiting for Transit Windsor in front of the University’s proposed parking garage and Innovation Centre, bike racks and more.
The stretch of Wyandotte between Sunset and Randolph will reopen on or before September 28th.
