One northbound lane only and two southbound lanes
Three alternatives: Victoria Bridge, Jacques-Cartier Bridge and
LONGUEUIL, QC, May 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain
Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) wishes to remind motorists that major
roadwork will be taking place on the Champlain Bridge this weekend from
Friday, May 20 at 11 PM to Monday, May 23 at 5 AM, in order to
completely replace expansion joints. During this period, only one lane
will be open towards Montreal and two lanes towards the South Shore,
and this, during the entire weekend, both during the day and at night.
This major roadwork will have a considerable impact on traffic.
Therefore, during this period, it is highly recommended that motorists
avoid the Champlain Bridge and use the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, the Victoria Bridge and even the Honoré-Mercier
Bridge. In fact, the two lanes on the Victoria Bridge will exceptionally be
opened northbound from 9 AM to 9 PM on Saturday and Sunday to counter
the closures on the Champlain Bridge. The Jacques-Cartier Bridge will
also be able to open three lanes in one direction or the other
depending on traffic flow.
Please note that the northbound lane that will be open to traffic on the
Champlain Bridge will be narrower than usual, namely 3.3 meters. Trucks exceeding the allowed width will be asked to avoid the Champlain Bridge northbound.
Finally, we would like to remind motorists that this major roadwork will
continue throughout the month of May and beginning of June, as well as
in August and September. To find out about our upcoming spring and
summer schedule, please visit: http://bit.ly/mPeTwc.
All efforts have been undertaken to complete the roadwork as quickly and
efficiently as possible. Please also note that this roadwork could be
rescheduled due to unfavorable weather conditions.
