The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has applied to the Ontario Land Tribunal under subsection 37(2) of the Public Transportation and Highway Improvement Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.50, for approval of road closings along Highway 3 east of Arner Townline (Essex Road 23) easterly to east of Union Avenue (Essex Road 34), Town of Kingsville.

In 2006, MTO completed a study of Highway 3 from Outer Drive in Windsor easterly 33.5 km to Union Avenue (Essex Road 34), which recommended a series of improvements that was documented in a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR). The TESR was approved in 2006 and MTO has implemented the improvements in three phases with Phase 1 and Phase 2 being constructed in 2009 and 2012, respectively.
Recently, MTO completed a Design Study to review the 2006 TESR approved improvements from east of Arner Townline (Essex Road 23) easterly to east of Union Avenue (Essex Road 34) based on the current transportation and environmental conditions in the Study Area. The Study identified the following road closures as part of the confirmed improvements:
The closure of the intersections with Highway 3 at Cameron Side Road / Concession Road 9, Marsh Road / Concession Road 8, Inman Side Road/ South Talbot Road and Upcott Side Road.
