Right - Junction of Hwy 4 & Hwy 8 in Downtown Clinton. From here, Hwy 8 follows Huron Street west to Goderich or Ontario Street east to Stratford. The route of Hwy 4 continues straight ahead via Albert Street towards Wingham. As a result of the mass highway downloading of 1997-1998, the portion of Hwy 4 lying north of Clinton is no longer maintained by the province. The highway is now maintained by Huron County between Clinton and the Wingham area. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
