WINDSOR, Ont. — Windsor residents want more public input into border-crossing improvements before any changes to bridges and tunnels are made.
A federal-provincial joint management committee is looking at how the federal and provincial governments should spend $300 million to upgrade border crossings at Windsor.
At a recent public meeting, residents said the public has been left out of the consultation process. They want social and environmental concerns involved in any plan addressed.
The main proposals are a dedicated road for international traffic leading to the Ambassador Bridge; the construction of a second bridge in west Windsor; a dedicated truck route from Highway 401 to the CPR train tunnel; and a second truck ferry between Windsor and Detroit.
