LONGUEUIL, QC, May 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise road users that the fourth (possibly the last)
weekend work BLITZ in the Champlain Corridor will take place from
Friday, May 24, at 10 p.m., to Monday, May 27, at 5 a.m.
This fourth BLITZ will take place on the A-15 and the île des Sœurs
Bridge, as the major work planned this year for the Champlain Bridge
was completed in the first three work BLITZES.
Using the Bonaventure Expressway is an excellent option to consider if you want to avoid the A-15
worksite when accessing or exiting the Champlain Bridge.
This means that all major work was completed in three weekends on the
Champlain Bridge, including paving the entire bridge and completely
replacing four expansion joints. Over the next few months work will
mainly continue under the bridge and on the piers, beams and deck until

p.m. to 8 a.m. and Saturday, May 25, also from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m.
For the weekend, the installation of road signs on the A-15 will begin
Friday night at 7:30 p.m. towards the North and at 8:30 p.m. towards
the South, causing the closure of a first lane.
