Third Street Bridge Update - Revised

The Third Street Bridge closure has been delayed one day due to recent heavy rainfall. The bridge will be closed from Tuesday, August 1st at 7:00am to Friday, August 4th at 7:00pm.

The closure is required to replace deficient asphalt on either side of the bridge to ensure the long-term quality of the bridge’s paved surface. Detours will be posted to direct traffic around the side, which includes the use of the Lacroix Street Bridge and Fifth Street Bridge.

Ride CK route detours will be posted on the buses, at the terminal, and on the website at

The Municipality of Chatham-Kent would like to thank the residents of Chatham-Kent for their cooperation and patience during this closure.
