Streetscaping to begin on Wyandotte Street in Walkerville
It seems trees are struggling to stay alive in Walkerville.
Many along the Wyandotte Street stretch in the community are dying.
The city is stepping in to do something about it.
Starting next week, city crews will be in Walkervile to complete some streetscaping.
Devonshire Road all the way west to Gladstone Avenue in Walkerville will be affected by the construction.
A number of improvements will be made, including trees, new lights, new sidewalks and new pavement.
Stefan Fediuk, a landscape architect for the City of Windsor says the troubled trees will be looked after.
"At every corner you'll have four trees and they will have a very large two-metre-by-seven-metre underground pit in which they can actually establish their roots," Fediuk said.
Work is expected to take three months to complete.
Some local businesses worry about the affect the construction will have on their bottom line.
Vito Maggio is a business owner in the area.
He says while it might be an inconvenience for the short term, it's worth it.
"I think what they're going to do to the street is great," he said. "They're going to improve the area. It's needed."
