Good News! After 4 Years, Windsor Thruway Open

Posted: June 29, 2015

WINDSOR, ON – Good news for truckers heading across the border at Windsor-Detroit. After four years of construction, the portion of 401 between North Talbot Road and the E.C. Row Expressway will open Sunday at midnight, so your loads won’t have to hit all those grade-level red lights anymore.

Not only that but after Sunday, your eastbound trucks won’t have to use that pesky roundabout either.

Drivers should also be mindful of the speed limit changes. The 80 km/h limit over about six kilometers of new road and then, were three lanes drop to two, the limit is reduced to 60 to make merging with surface traffic a smooth process.
