uWindsor to create pedestrian-friendly zone on campus

November 28, 2013

The University of Windsor Board Of Governors has approved phase one of a new Campus Master Plan, which will see Sunset Avenue, a street running through the main campus, turned into a pedestrian-only area with cross-campus walking routes and recreational areas. Sunset Avenue will close in summer 2014, and the 6 other phases of the overall plan would take place between 2014 and 2017. “The creative designs in this [first] phase provide new campus gateways, and functional outdoor spaces that will offer everyone places to gather and relax, enjoy recreational activity, or celebrate an event,” says uWindsor President Alan Wildeman. The future phases include: a new pedestrian gateway to campus; a dynamic community park offering casual seating, a stage structure, ball courts, green space and new paving and lighting; more landscaping on campus grounds; and a newly-designed welcome centre. uWindsor News Release | Windsor Star
