Bonaventure Expressway: roadwork on the nights of June 15 and 17 - Complete closure of the expressway over night at Pierre-Dupuy Avenue

LONGUEUIL, QC, June 15, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated wishes to announce overnight roadwork on the Bonaventure Expressway in the Pierre-Dupuy Avenue sector (Exit 2 of the Bonaventure Expressway), in order to continue the repair work begun in May.

The work will necessitate complete closure of this section of the Bonaventure Expressway from Wednesday, June 15 at 10 PM to Thursday, June 16 at 6 AM and from Friday, June 17 at 11 PM until Saturday, June 18 at 9 AM.

Please note that major roadwork will also take place on the Champlain Bridge the same weekend from Friday at 10 PM to Monday at 5 AM with only one lane open towards the South Shore and two lanes towards Montreal. Motorists are asked to avoid the Champlain Bridge Corridor during this period. The Jacques-Cartier, Victoria and Honoré-Mercier bridges represent better alternatives for motorists travelling to Montreal.

We invite you to consult our map (http://bit.ly/bplZzT), which presents the various closure scenarios and the detour road. In this case, it is a Type C closure.

Details of the closure

Complete closure of the Bonaventure Expressway east (Champlain Bridge) and west (Downtown Montreal) at Exit 2 including:

  1. Closure of the access ramp from Wellington St.
  2. Complete closure of Pierre-Dupuy Avenue under the Bonaventure Expressway
