Shovels in the Ground to Widen Highway 3

Ontario investing $50 million to build a new Banwell interchange for Windsor

March 11, 2024

WINDSOR – To tackle gridlock, save commuters time and support the local economy, the province is advancing several highway infrastructure projects in Southwestern Ontario, including the start of construction on the final phase of widening Highway 3 between Essex and Leamington and building a new interchange at Banwell Road and E.C. Row Expressway in Windsor. The province is also building a new interchange connecting Highway 401 to Lauzon Parkway.

“By widening Highway 3 and building the Banwell and Lauzon Parkway interchanges, we’re building the transportation infrastructure needed to tackle gridlock and support the region’s growing economy,” said Premier Doug Ford. “While previous governments ignored the province’s infrastructure needs, we’re getting it done for Windsor-Essex by getting shovels in the ground as part of our $28 billion plan to build roads and highways.”
