24 HOUR DELAY in Road Closures Due to Wide Load Vessel Escort


Broadcast time: 6:07 PM

Date: October 13, 2019

The Sarnia Police Service would like to advise the public that the scheduled vessel transport from Chester Street to the Imperial Refinery located on Vidal Street South has been delayed by 24 hours.

It will now start on October 14, 2019, at 6:30 PM and arrive on site on October 15, 2019, at 8:30 AM (travel time is still estimated to be 14 hours).

Road ways will be shut down once the vessel is travelling due to its sheer size. We are asking the public to avoid the roads that are marked below on the map.

Please avoid the area during the above mentioned times for the safety of all involved.


  1. Northbound on Chester Street to Confederation Line.
  2. Eastbound on Confederation Line to Blackwell Side Road
  3. Southbound on Blackwell Side Road to Churchill Line
  4. Westbound on Churchill Line to Plank Road and back onto Churchill Line continuing westbound to Scott Road
