DETROIT (WWJ) – There’s a new way to get to Detroit via the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel.

Starting today, drivers headed to the U.S. will have to access the tunnel via Goyeau Street at Wyandotte Street only. City of Windsor officials say Goyeau Street between Wyandotte Street and Park Street will be used for tunnel access only and no longer for traffic access to local roads.

“This is a significant change in traffic flow in downtown Windsor,” said Mario Sonego, City Engineer. “The expanded tunnel plaza entrance moves right up to Wyandotte, with Goyeau Street between Wyandotte Street and Park Street no longer being a through street. Drivers will need to adjust to accommodate the changes.”

This section of Goyeau Street will become part of the new Tunnel Plaza alignment, which will include a reconfigured municipal parking lot, dedicated NEXUS and bus lanes, and additional queue lanes for high volume periods.

The changes are part of several tunnel plaza improvements, and signs re-directing drivers will be posted.

Improvements to the tunnel plaza are part of the Let’s Get Windsor-Essex Moving strategy, funded by Canada and Ontario under the Border Infrastructure Fund.
