LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 17, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCIB) and the Ministère des Transports
du Québec (MTQ) wish to inform motorists that traffic on the Honoré
Mercier Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction (towards
Montreal and towards the South Shore) during the day on Saturday,
November 19 from 6 AM to 6 PM.
Please note that Airlie ramp enabling access to the Honoré Mercier
Bridge towards the South Shore from Airlie St. will also be closed
during this period.
In case of bad weather, this obstruction to traffic will be rescheduled
to Sunday from 6 AM to 6 PM.
The upstream bridge of the Honoré Mercier Bridge, namely the bridge that
enables access to the South Shore (Route 138 West), will be completely
closed to traffic during this period. Therefore, traffic will be
reduced to one lane in each direction, with one being against the current of traffic, on the downstream bridge
(Route 138 East).
These closures will allow the delivery of material underneath the
bridge, within the context of Contract B, of the Honoré Mercier Bridge
To follow the progress of this project, please visit our blog at: www.mercierbridge.ca.
