Sandwich Town Arch To Be Installed On Thursday

The entrance to Olde Sandwich Town in west Windsor is going to change Thursday.

The City of Windsor will be installing the arch over Sandwich St. and, as a result, Sandwich St. from Chewett St. to the roundabout will be closed to traffic for the installation.

It will be closed from 9am to 3pm.

City Project Engineer Tiffany Pocock says the columns will need to be completed at a later date.

"There will be some masonry work to occur and then in the spring, plaques with the stories will be installed," says Pocock.

She says it will look a lot like the arch over Ottawa St.

"It will be similar to Ottawa St, I have seen it before it has been painted and it is awesome. I was quite amazed at how amazing it looked," says Pocock.

City Council approved the project in 2017 for $300,000.
