LONGUEUIL, QC, June 13, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to inform road users
that the major work blitz will continue on the Champlain Bridge
corridor over the coming weekend, beginning on the night of Friday,
June 15. These works, contingent on the weather, will allow us to carry
out paving work, repair the roadway and replace expansion joints.
Depending on the weather forecast, a notice will be published on our
blog (www.champlainbridge.ca) at 3:30 p.m. this Friday to inform road users of the work scheduled
for the weekend.
Between Friday, 10 p.m. to Monday, 5 a.m., only one lane will be open to
circulation in each direction on Highway 15, between Atwater and
L'Île-des-Sœurs Bridge. On the Champlain Bridge, two lanes will be open
towards Montreal and one lane will be open towards the South Shore.
Just like the past weekends, it is important to note that during this
period lane width will be reduced to 3 meters in both directions, on
the Champlain Bridge corridor. Vehicles exceeding this width should
take alternate routes.
Also note that during this period the exit ramp from the Champlain
Bridge to Route 132 will be completely closed. Other ramps will also be
closed on Highway 15, on the Montreal side of the bridge (full details
Remember that these work blitzes could continue over the coming weekends
depending on the progress of the scheduled road work. So far, two
weekend work blitzes have taken place on the Champlain Bridge corridor.
Let us remind you that in order to reduce the amount of traffic
hindrances, significant efforts have been made to concentrate work
during spring, mostly over weekends. For example, last year there were
10 major weekend closures on the Champlain Bridge corridor, while this
year the Corporation plans to have three to six major work weekends,
depending on weather conditions, which is essentially twice as few.

find Episode 1 and Episode 2 of the major work blitz on the Champlain Bridge corridor.
To follow the work on the Champlain Bridge corridor, which is subject to
changes according to weather conditions, road users are invited to
regularly visit our blog www.champlainbridge.ca to plan their weekend trips.
