Windsorites who want to have a say on the proposed Cabana Road section of the Windsor Loop have until this Friday to do so.
The Windsor Loop is a 42.5 km (26.4 miles) circular loop that connects the city around its perimeter, joining city neighbourhoods and providing access to the Trans Canada Trail.
As part of the 2013 and 2014 capital budgets, City Council endorsed $1.8 million to construct the Cabana Road cycling facilities between Northway Avenue and Walker Road.
The City of Windsor has designed two possible options that were presented an open house held on March 27th, and are still available online for those who could not make it.
Option one calls for bike lanes to be constructed on each side of the road, with missing sidewalk sections also completed. This would include filling in some ditch sections along the stretch. The total estimated cost is $2,600,000.
The second option calls for a multi-use trail to be constructed on one side only, with missing sidewalk sections completed on the other side. Total cost for his option is estimated at $2,620,000.
Once city administration has gathered all the public feedback, it will then be brought to City Council for their final decision.
