As part of the Gordie Howe International Bridge project, we are reconstructing a three-kilometre stretch of Sandwich Street from south of the Rosedale Avenue roundabout past Ojibway Parkway to McKee Avenue. This project, worth approximately $12 million, is being completed in three phases with the goal of achieving full completion in 2024.
To deliver these much-needed improvements, road closures and detours will be required. That starts with the first phase of work – from Ojibway Parkway to Chappell Avenue – anticipated to begin on September 5, 2023.
We have heard, over the last week, feedback from members of the Sandwich community regarding the construction approach that would see a full closure of this 500-metre length of Sandwich Street and the construction approach that would see one lane open in one direction.
