The Ontario Minister of Transportation is asking trucking company dispatchers to note that the new Herb Gray Parkway in Windsor which connects from Hwy 401 has been open for two weeks and Hwy. 3 is closed heading to the bridge crossing.
MTO reports that many truck drivers still appear unaware the new expressway is accessible and instead they continue to head down Hwy. 3; then they try to find their way around the closure by winding around residential streets – much to the annoyance of residents.
The Ministry is asking OTA to once again communicate this issue to trucking companies, who should inform dispatchers and drivers.
