The Detroit-Windsor Tunnel renovations

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit-Windsor Tunnel will be undergoing renovations during the next few months.

Officials with the border crossing between Detroit and Canada said Friday that the work will primarily take place at night and won't affect morning and evening commuter traffic. The tunnel has put in place additional commercial height restrictions.

Projects will include upgrades to the communication system and masonry work to the tunnel's ceiling. Recent work has included installation of new lighting, electrical and mechanical systems and an enhanced camera system.

Tunnel officials say renovations have been completed to the customs plaza in Detroit and work on Windsor's plaza is scheduled to be finished later this year.
