Windsor Detroit Tunnel Project

Detroit Windsor Tunnel

This project consisted of: Planners, Planning & Land Development

In September of 2012, TULLOCH was successful in obtaining a Contract Administration RFP for the reconstruction of a new plaza and access for the international crossing of the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel. The work consists of the usual excavations, removals and drainage, but there is also an abundance of electrical work, traffic control, various concrete items, and public relations involved. To accomplish this project, a spider web of underground work of removals/installations has to be carefully coordinated with scheduled area events to prevent congestion of traffic entering the Tunnel, and to ensure average commuter volumes are maintained. When the contract is complete in October 2014, the Tunnel Plaza will be 50 percent larger due to the incorporation of the adjacent commercial properties and a closed portion of Goyeau Street, which ran between the two properties. The newly acquired land has been designed to incorporate a dedicated Nexus and bus lane access, peak auto lanes to accommodate larger volumes of traffic during peak times, Commercial Vehicle Inspection Area, unique landscaping and electrical LED lighting, along with two new modern buildings for maintenance staff ($1.9 million; 4,661 ft2 Maintenance Building) and CBSA administration staff ($6.4 million; 12,926 ft2 CBSA Building).
