Windsor looking for feedback on proposed redesign of University and Victoria avenues
The City of Windsor and consulting firm CIMA+ are looking for input on preferred design concepts for the redevelopment of University and Victoria avenues. An environmental study was commissioned in 2018 to explore ways of reconfiguring a 3.5-kilometre stretch of University Avenue West from Huron Church Road to McDougall Street to better integrate new features for walking, bicycling and other modes of active transportation to make the roadway more attractive and accessible. The study also proposes strategies for optimizing the public right-of-way along two blocks of Victoria Avenue from Chatham Street West to Park Street West. From July 27 to Aug. 24, residents can submit their ideas. For more information visit the University Avenue & Victoria Avenue Environmental Assessment page on citywindsor.ca.
