LONGUEUIL, QC, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the ministère des Transports
du Québec (MTQ) wish to announce the September 12 opening of a
temporary viaduct to provide access to the Honoré-Mercier Bridge from
the borough of LaSalle to the South Shore. The opening of this
temporary viaduct will allow workers to demolish and rebuild the
current Monette Viaduct over the next year.
As part of the reconstruction of the Monette Viaduct, located at the
northern approach to the bridge, the temporary viaduct will be an
important means to alleviate inconveniences to motorists using the
route. During the roadwork, traffic will detour over the viaduct in
order to maintain the usual traffic flow to the South Shore while
completely eliminating traffic on the Monette Viaduct.
Opening of the temporary viaduct should not cause significant
inconveniences to motorists as the traffic will flow normally while
permitting reconstruction of the northern approach to the
Honoré-Mercier Bridge to the South Shore.
To follow progress of the project and to consult the map showing the
location of the temporary viaduct, we invite you to visit our blog at: www.mercierbridge.ca.
