LONGUEUIL, QC, Feb. 17, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) wishes to inform motorists that
inspection work will be taking place on the Champlain Bridge during the
day on Saturday, February 18 and will require the closure of one out of
three lanes from 6 AM to 5 PM towards Montreal, then towards the South
Shore, alternately, at the bridge's steel structure.
Ahead of the 2012-2013 roadwork season, such inspection work enables us
to better plan the work to be carried out in the coming year. In order
to ensure the workers' safety (for which the lift will be raised above
the lanes and underneath the bridge) and to facilitate the quality of
the visual inspections being carried out, the work will take place
during the day.
Given that there will be no roadwork on the Honoré-Mercier,
Jacques-Cartier and Victoria Bridges, this work should not have a
considerable impact on traffic. However, we invite road users to use
these alternate options over the course of this period.
