Ojibway Parkway Wildlife Crossing Class Environmental Assessment

The City of Windsor has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for a Wildlife Crossing at Ojibway Parkway south of Broadway Boulevard. The purpose of this study is to identify opportunities to provide safe passage for area wildlife and species at risk and create landscape connectivity in the Ojibway Prairie Complex. The Class Environmental Assessment process requires that various reasonable solutions shall be identified and evaluated to identify a preferred solution. For this study, an evaluation of alternative solutions was conducted, which identified a Preferred Solution being a Wildlife Overpass (North Option).
