Honoré Mercier Bridge - Complete closure of South Shore-bound lanes CONFIRMED on Saturday, December 21

LONGUEUIL, QC, Dec. 19, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to CONFIRM the complete closure of the South Shore-bound lanes of the Honoré Mercier Bridge on Saturday, December 21 from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. due to expected weather forecast.

This closure is necessary to carry out repairs on the federal section of the bridge's roadway. It is important to note that the bridge's two Montreal-bound lanes will remain open during this period.

The section of the slab targeted in this repair work will eventually be completely replaced as part of the bridge's roadway rehabilitation program. In the meantime, it is important that maintenance work be carried out on a regular basis, especially as winter starts to avoid operations taking place during that time of year.

During this major closure, road users are encouraged to use the Champlain, Victoria or Jacques Cartier Bridges, or the new section of Autoroute 30 towards the South Shore.
