The Ministry of Transportation, Ontario, has retained Dillon Consulting Limited to complete the Preliminary Design, Initial Detailed Design and Class Environmental Assessment (EA) of improvements to Highway 3 through the Town of Essex and adjoining portions of the towns of Kingsville and Lakeshore.

In 2006, MTO completed a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) for the widening of the Highway 3 from Windsor to Leamington, including widening the highway through the Town of Essex. The TESR recommended that additional study be undertaken to address operational and safety issues through the Town of Essex.  This study will develop recommendations from the Town of Essex Transportation Study (2010) to a greater level of detail and will seek Environmental Approval through a TESR Addendum to proceed with recommended improvements, as
 outlined on the Project Overview page.  Previous reports are included in the Reports section of this website. 

Public Consultation is an important component of this project. We encourage you to review the material on this website, and provide us with your feedback. Regular updates on the study’s progress and public consultation events will be posted on this website.
