(WINDSOR, ON) – Work is continuing at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel and so are the nightly closings. Originally scheduled to be completed by the end of June, the repairs to the ceiling of the tunnel is still on-going due to the age of the structure and lack of previous attention.
The $22 million project is being completed by US-based Toebe Construction. There is no estimated completion date because of the complications.
Nightly closures of the tunnel will continue for the foreseeable future. From Sunday through Thursday each week the international border crossing will close between 8pm and 5:30am.
The construction has also disrupted Transit Windsor’s Tunnel Bus service to events in Detroit. Regular departures will operate during the day with the last round trip taking place at 7pm and returning via the Ambassador Bridge.
All commuter and visitor traffic is advised to cross at the Ambassador Bridge.
