LONGUEUIL, QC, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) wishes to remind motorists of
the continuation of paving work on the Champlain Bridge, as well as on
Highway 15 over the weekend. The combined road obstructions on both the
Champlain Bridge and Highway 15 will allow for the maximization of work
on a same axis during the same period. Motorists can also visit our
blog, on Friday, September 30 as of 3:30 PM, in order to find out if
the work will be taking place due to forecasted weather conditions.
As of Friday, September 30 at 10 PM to Monday, October 3 at 5 AM, a
single Montreal bound lane and two South Shore bound lanes will be open
on the Champlain Bridge, whereas on Highway 15, a single lane will be
open in each direction between the Atwater and Nuns' Island exits.
Traffic will be more difficult during this period and motorists are
asked to avoid the Champlain Bridge corridor and to opt for the
Jacques-Cartier and Victoria Bridges instead. The Jacques Cartier
Bridge will also be able to open three lanes in one direction or the
other depending on traffic. However, please note that the Victoria Bridge will keep its usual configuration over the next weekends, namely one
lane in each direction.
For all details concerning the setting up of the worksite in the night
of Friday to Saturday, we invite you to visit our blog at www.champlainbridge.ca.
NOTICE TO NUNS' ISLAND RESIDENTS
For nuns' island residents, it is very important to note that the work
on Highway 15 will require the closure of Exit 57 (exit to
L'Île-des-Soeurs from Highway 15 North), ramp P3 (entrance for Highway
15 South by Gaétan-Laberge Boulevard in Verdun) and ramp O (entrance
for Highway 15 South by exit 4 of the Bonaventure Expressway) during
this period. For more information, you can consult the map presenting
the location of these accesses: http://bit.ly/q54F44.
The Bonaventure Expressway will be the best way to enter and exit Nuns'
Island, but traffic will be more difficult for residents over the
course of the weekend given the roadwork that is taking place on a
section of this highway.
WORK ON A SECTION OF THE Bonaventure EXPRESSWAY
We also wish to inform motorists of work on the Bonaventure Expressway
in the area of Pierre-Dupuy Avenue (exit 2 on the Bonaventure Expressway), in order to pursue the
rehabilitation work started in May.
This work will require the complete closure of this section of the
Bonaventure Expressway in each direction from Friday, September 30 at
11 PM to Monday, October 3 at 5 AM with a detour via exit 2 of the
expressway and then via its service lane. We invite you to view the map
(http://bit.ly/bplZzT) showing the various closure scenarios. In this case, the closure that
will be taking place is scenario C.
