Third Street Bridge Update July 2023

The Third Street Bridge will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic from Monday, July 31st at 7:00am until Thursday, August 3rd at 7:00pm (weather dependent). 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.

Transit 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.
