Study Objectives

The Canada-US-Ontario-MichiganBorder Transportation Partnership is conducting a Planning/Need and Feasibility Study to develop a long term transportation strategy that will ensure the safe and efficient movement of people, goods and services across the United States and Canadian border within the region of Southeast Michigan and Southwest Ontario, including improved connections to national, provincial, and regional transportation systems.

Transportation capacity problems are anticipated with the existing Windsor-Detroit border crossings and their associated linkages. The purpose of this study is to conduct an assessment of the transportation network and long range transportation planning problems, opportunities and options; and to determine the technical need and justification for the recommended transportation improvements.

The results of the study may be used to initiate the scoping and terms of reference for an environmental study to meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA) and Ontario Environmental Assessment Act (OEAA).

The project goal is to develop practical and feasible alternatives which will address the objectives and issues as outlined in this document.
