WINDSOR, Ont. — Border Gateways Management is holding a public forum tomorrow in regards to getting trucks off the Windsor side streets.

It will be held at the Holiday Inn Select on Huron Church Rd. in Windsor from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The purpose will be to present the group’s Missing Link report, a timely truck traffic management solution that addresses the Windsor/Detroit border crossing crisis. It says it will eliminate truck delays and help get the trucks off of Windsor’s side streets right now.

Public input will be welcome during a question and answer period during the forum.

Over two years ago, Border Gateways Management Inc., a Windsor based company, developed a process that can effectively manage truck traffic heading to our border, 24 hours a day. Trucks will arrive at the border in a managed flow, in compliance with all necessary border procedures.

The release of the Schwartz Report, commissioned by the city of Windsor, on January 21 emphasizes the absolute necessity of taking the processing of trucks away from the border to ensure that all trucks and other commercial vehicles arrive at the border in an ordered stream with all proper paperwork in place.

Border Gateways’ Missing Link proposal can be successfully managing truck traffic now, 5 – 10 years before Schwartz’ recommended ITS network system is up and running. Thursday’s Public Forum will re-iterate how Border Gateways truck management system works and how it will complement all existing and future border crossings.
