Chatham-Kent closures and cancellations

Road Closures:

Colborne Street between William Street North and Prince Street North in Chatham will be closed from Monday, June 5 to Wednesday, June 14 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Construction crews will be working on the William Street North Sewer Separation project, and local traffic will be permitted up to excavation areas within the work zone.

Erie Street South in Wheatley will have intermittent single-lane closures south of Middleton Line at the Two Creeks Drain. Flag persons will direct traffic through the single lane and drivers should expect minor delays. The work to relocate the Entegrus gas line is expected to take place from 7 a.m. on Monday, May 8 until 5 p.m. on Friday, June 2.

The Baptiste Creek bridge between Dashwheel Road and Montpetit Road in Tilbury East will be closed from May 14 until further notice. There are currently no plans to reopen this bridge.

Municipal officials said the Mint Line over Baptiste Creek bridge was previously closed. It was temporarily fortified and reopened with a six-tonne weight restriction to provide light vehicle access to the west while the bridge on Mint Line at Montpetit Road (King & Whittle Drain) was closed for replacement. The new bridge on Mint Line at Montpetit Road is now open and provides full load access east up to the closed Baptiste Creek bridge.

Detour route: Montpetit Road – Coutts Line – Jeannettes Creek Road – Mint Line

Glassford Road is closed over the Ellwood Drain at Spence Line from Wednesday, December 16 at 8 a.m. until further notice due to the condition of the structure.

Rose Beach Line over South Marsh Creek is closed because of erosion from Lake Erie along the edge of the road. It’s unknown how long the closure will last. Since Rose Beach Line will no longer be available as a route between Morpeth and Rondeau, the alternative route is Talbot Trail and Kent Bridge Road.
