Banwell Road Receiving 2.5 Million Dollars in Improvements
A 2.5-million-dollar upgrade is underway on Banwell Road between Tecumseh Road East and Palmetto Street in Phase 1 of a two-phase improvement project. Phase 2 will extend from Palmetto Street to Wildwood Drive.
Phase 1 improvements include:
Widening to two lanes in each direction, separated by a median
Construction of new concrete sidewalks and Multi Use Trail (MUT)
Construction of flexible roadway pavement (new asphalt)
Installation of street lighting and traffic signals
Upgrading the storm sewer/drainage and closing most of the road side-ditches
“The Banwell Road Corridor Improvement Project is yet another example of how council and administration are fulfilling our promise to fix Windsor’s roads,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “The widening of Banwell Road will improve safety, reduce traffic congestion, cut travel times and increase active transportation for residents while meeting our growing transportation needs long into the future.”
All businesses in the affected area will remain open with access from the roadway.
