$27 million Cabana Road corridor upgrades continue

Ontario Construction News staff writer

Preliminary work has started on phase four of the Cabana Road projection in Windsor.

Construction from Dominion Boulevard to Highway 3 includes about $14 million in improvements, including the expansion of the road from two to four lanes; wider sidewalks; active transportation facilities; and upgraded water mains, storm sewers, street lighting and traffic signals. This work will begin in the spring of 2023.

“Our community is growing rapidly, especially as institutions like St. Clair College and the University of Windsor expand their facilities, planning continues for our new acute care hospital, and shovels hit the ground for our new electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturing plant,” Mayor Drew Dilkens said at a news conference.

“By investing in reliable road infrastructure like this project along Cabana Road, we are delivering results that will help ensure our economy thrives and residents can access safe and efficient transportation to meet current and future needs.”

Work will soon be underway by ENWIN to relocate their utility lines on this stretch of Cabana Road. This work must be complete before road construction can begin. During the relocation process, residents may experience momentary outages as ENWIN switches power line sources.

The overall project is funded through the city’s capital investment of $47 million for road reconstruction and upgrades in 2022, as well as a contribution from the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), including almost $1 million from the Government of Canada and $783,000 from the Government of Ontario.

“We recognize that Cabana Road is a major artery within the city transportation system, and we are pleased to partner with the City of Windsor to relocate ENWIN’s infrastructure to allow for this important project to reach completion” said ENWIN president and CEO Helga Reidel.
