Nightly closures to the Detroit-Windsor tunnel will resume Sunday, June 23, 2019 as work wraps up on the $22-million dollar, two-year renovation project.

The tunnel will close between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sundays through Thursdays, from June 23 to July 19. The Tunnel will remain open June 24 to accommodate the International Fireworks display on the Detroit River and will be open July 4-6 for the Independence Day holiday.

The traveling public will be advised in advance of any closures scheduled after July 19.

Transit Windsor’s service to Detroit will also be altered starting June 23 due to construction.

During the closure times, the last regular Transit Windsor service bus to Detroit will depart from the Windsor International Transit Terminal at 8 p.m., and the last bus from Detroit to Windsor will depart from Little Caesars Arena at 8:34 p.m. during the Monday to Thursday nightly closures.

During special event nights in Detroit, the tunnel will be used going to the event, and the Ambassador Bridge will be used for the return trip home. Special Event Transit Service will continue for 30 minutes following games and concerts. Riders will be picked up in the same location where they are dropped off.
