Directing Traffic For Fireworks

Along with a number of road closures, the Windsor Police Service is introducing a “no stopping zone” to keep pedestrians safe and traffic moving before and after the fireworks display on the Detroit River.

Starting at 6pm Monday, all roads north of Wyandotte St., between the Ambassador Bridge and Devonshire Rd., will be closed.

The “no stopping zone” is a horseshoe of streets starting with Aylmer St., from Wyandotte St. down to Riverside Dr., over to Glengarry St., then back up to Wyandotte St. ┬áPolice say that will in effect between 12pm Monday and 2am Tuesday.

Of course, those looking for an alternative to driving in and around downtown can park at the Devonshire Mall and take advantage of the free shuttle service provided by Transit Windsor.

The fireworks show is expected to start at 9:55pm Monday night, and last for 25 minutes.

There is a rain date set for tomorrow, but as of this morning the Weather Network is calling for just a 20% chance of precipitation. Environment Canada says there is a 30% chance of rain, but it expects it to happen early in the evening, if at all.
