                  Highway 401 interchange closure update

Reconstruction of the Highway 401/ Highway 40/ Communication Road interchange will result in a number of changes for local drivers beginning in Mid-April and lasting until late autumn.

Effective April 18, Highway 40 will close at Creek Road/Pinehurst Line north of the interchange and Communication Road will close south of the interchange at Horton Line except for local traffic.

Municipal services won’t be affected by the closure and reconstruction work at the Highway 401/ Highway 40/ Communication Road interchange.

Provincial Offences Court and the Harwich Transfer Station, located immediately north of Horton Line, will remain open for service throughout the interchange reconstruction which is expected to last until November.

Residents are reminded that they can pay  fines at any municipal service centre or at the Civic Centre in Chatham during regular office hours if they want to avoid the detour.   As well, all fines can be paid on-line at

The Court remains open and operational with all business proceeding as usual. Those with a trial date must still attend. For questions about any other matters, including requests for trial, extensions and re-openings, the public is encouraged to call the office at 519-352-8484 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

There will be no changes at the transfer station, as residents will continue to have full access to the waste and recycling facility.
