 *The Old Tecumseh Road Pathway Project will continue to move forward as it provides an important link between Tecumseh/Windsor and Lakeshore. In 2016, a Functional Design Study was completed and public input in April 2016 was gathered to create a Preferred Design. In 2017, Lakeshore continues to move forward on this project by completing a Detailed Design for this multi-use trail and by actively pursuing funding for this project.
