Wednesday, May 25 at 9:30 AM to Thursday, May 26 at 5 AM
LONGUEUIL, QC, May 24, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to announce
the closure of the La Prairie on ramp towards Montreal from Wednesday, May 25 at 9:30 AM to Thursday, May 25 at 5 AM. This closing will allow for the cement work to the expansion joints of
the new on ramp now under construction since the end of last March. The
exit ramp to La Prairie will remain open to traffic.
Signage will indicate the detours for motorists to use during the
period. To see the detour route, we invite you to consult the map
towards Montreal - http://bit.ly/cefr3D. Traffic may be heavier between 3 PM and 7 PM, during afternoon rush
Please note that repairs to this access ramp represent the last stage of
the first contract begun as part of the Honoré-Mercier Bridge repairs.
Currently, all the new pre-fabricated concrete slabs have been put in
position. Over the course of the following weeks, it will be necessary
to install the new expansion joints, undertake the cement work on all
the joints, complete the post-tension apron, and pave and add the
painted markings of the lanes.
