LONGUEUIL, Oct. 31, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise road users that partial and complete

Bonaventure Expressway closure schedule
We invite you to consult the closure schedule planned for the
Bonaventure Expressway phase change, which is subject to change
according to weather conditions.
Closure of the left lane towards Montreal (currently running in the opposite direction); a single lane will remain open towards downtown Montreal:
Saturday, November 2, 7:00 a.m., to Sunday, November 3, noon
Wednesday, November 6, 10:00 a.m., to Thursday, November 7, 6:00 a.m.
Thursday, November 7, 10:00 a.m., to Friday, November 8, 6:00 a.m.
During this closure, all access ramps will remain open to traffic.
Complete closure of the Bonaventure Expressway towards Montreal:

Friday, November 8, 10:00 p.m., to Saturday, November 9, 9:00 a.m.
This hindrance will result in the closure of two access ramps to the
Montreal-bound lanes of the Bonaventure Expressway (Ramps C and J, the
access ramps via Marc-Cantin St. and via Chemin des Moulins); the ramps
will close one hour before the complete closure.
During this period, a detour will be set up for road users via Exit 2
(Pierre-Dupuy): Exit 2 of the A-10 West/Chemin des
Moulins/Riverside/Mill/De la Commune West/McGill/Viger Ave.
Traffic will be very heavy throughout these periods, especially during
the complete closure of the Bonaventure Expressway towards Montreal.
Phase four lane configuration (last phase)
Once these weekend operations are completed, the fourth phase of work on
the Bonaventure Expressway will begin. Two lanes will be kept open to
traffic in each direction during this phase.
The access ramp to the Bonaventure Expressway from Chemin des Moulins towards downtown Montreal will remain closed during this fourth phase.
Road users are invited to use the access ramp from Marc-Cantin St. to
access the Bonaventure Expressway.
This work is part of the major rehabilitation program of the federal
section of the Bonaventure Expressway, which started in 2010 and allows
for the annual rehabilitation of one of the raised sections of this
stretch of the expressway.
The 2013 rehabilitation work will be carried out in four phases and is
expected to be completed over the winter. During this intensive work,
an entire section totalling four spans of the Bonaventure Expressway
will be reconstructed, including beams, the slab, expansion joints,
paving and marking, as well as the rehabilitation of pillars and pier
It is very important to note that this work is subject to weather
conditions and may be postponed until another weekend in the event of
