Investing in Windsor’s Public Infrastructure
Cabana Road Corridor Construction to the West, Planning to the East
2023 will mark an important turning point for the City of Windsor’s plan to modernize and renew the Cabana Road Corridor. Later this month, Phase 4 construction will complete the expansion of Cabana Road from Dominion Boulevard to Highway 3 in the west. The next phase of work on Cabana Road will include planning, design and early engineering activity to renew this important arterial roadway eastward.
The fifth phase of this project will rebuild Cabana Road from Sixth Concession to Walker Road and is expected to begin in 2024. At the same time, planning and design activity has already begun regarding continued expansion, further east of Walker Road, where Cabana becomes County Road #42, in support of anticipated economic growth, our region’s new acute care hospital and a growing community.
Phase 4 of the Cabana Road project represents an almost $19 million expansion of the road from two to four lanes; wider sidewalks; active transportation facilities; upgraded water mains, storm sewers, street lighting, traffic signals and pedestrian crossing signals; and the addition of one more through and right-turning lane at the Highway 3 and Cabana Road West intersection. All utility companies have completed the process of relocating utility lines to allow for this next phase of construction to begin.
