Municipality of Chatham-Kent Looking south towards the current southern terminus of Highway 40 from the Highway 401 overpass in Chatham-Kent.  The MTO's jurisdiction of Highway 40 ends just south of the creek bridge after the Highway 401 ramps.  Before 1998, Highway 40 continued southerly to Highway 3 in Blenhiem.

Highway 401 is the Macdonald Cartier Freeway, the principal east-west freeway running through southern Ontario.  Click here for Highway 401 images.
Municipality of Chatham-Kent Looking north along Highway 40 towards the northern Highway 401 ramps.  When this overpass was originally constructed, it was only designed to carry a minor county road, and not a busy King's Highway.  For this reason, this overpass is quite narrow and the northern Highway 401 ramps have very poor sightlines at Highway 40.

Municipality of Chatham-Kent Looking south along Highway 40 towards Highway 401.  Because of the narrow Highway 401 overpass and poor sightlines at the ramp terminals, Highway 40 has an advisory speed of 40km/h at the Highway 401 interchange.
