Concerned about the risk of daytime traffic jams, Essex Coun. Randy Voakes wants the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to limit the movement of oversized trucks carrying wind turbine parts on Highway 3 to the night. Other municipalities will be asked to support the resolution.
Daily movement of wind turbine parts from Windsor to Kruger Energy’s Port Alma wind farm is expected to last about three months.
The province, Essex County and City of Windsor long ago approved the OPP’s plan for daytime movement of the oversized loads.
