Champlain Corridor: two work blitzes in May

LONGUEUIL, QC, April 23, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise road users that two work BLITZES will take place in the Champlain Corridor, the first during the weekend of Friday, May 1 (9 p.m.), to Monday, May 4, (5 a.m.) and the second during the weekend of Friday, May 15 (9 p.m.), to Tuesday, May 19 (3 a.m.). During these two blitzes, a single lane will be open in each direction.

These two blitzes will allow crews to replace expansion joints, work on the rehabilitation of the viaduct S located east of Clément Bridge, and carry out major maintenance works and paving projects on the A-15.

The objective of these blitzes is to use these closures to mobilize several contractors who will be working day and night throughout the Champlain Corridor in order to limit the amount of hindrances (one closure rather than several potential closures).

Road users are encouraged to avoid the Champlain Bridge corridor where traffic will be particularly heavy, and instead use the Jacques Cartier, Victoria, or Honoré Mercier Bridges, as well as the Louis Hippolyte Lafontaine Bridge-Tunnel, to access or leave the island of Montreal.

BLITZ 1: FRIDAY, MAY 1 (9 P.M.) TO MONDAY, MAY 4, (5 A.M.)

During this blitz, the northbound lanes will be closed and one contraflow lane will be open towards the south to allow one lane in each direction on the Champlain Bridge.

Several on- and off-ramps will also be closed during this period to access and exit the bridge:

  • Complete closure of the A-10 between exits 4 and 6
  • Complete closure of exit 58 on the A-15 North
  • Complete closure of access ramps on Highway 132 East and West towards Champlain Bridge
  • Complete closure of the Alexandre G. Bell on-ramp towards A-10 West (Closed at 8 p.m.)
  • Complete closure of the Claude-Robutel on-ramp towards A-10 West (Closed at 8 p.m.)

BLITZ 2: FRIDAY, MAY 15 (9 P.M.) TO TUESDAY, MAY 19 (3 A.M.)

During this blitz, the southbound lanes will be closed and one contraflow lane will be open towards the south to allow one lane in each direction on the Champlain Bridge. Work will also take place on the A-15 between Atwater and Wellington exits and a contraflow will also be put in place to allow one lane in each direction.

Several on- and off-ramps will also be closed during this period to access and exit the bridge:

  • Complete closure of the A-10 between exits 4 and 6
  • Complete closure of the Atwater on-ramp towards A-15 South
  • Complete closure of exit 58 on the A-15 North
  • Complete closure of access ramps on Highway 132 East and West towards Champlain Bridge
  • Complete closure of the Alexandre G. Bell on-ramp towards A-10 West (Closed at 8 p.m.)
  • Complete closure of the Claude-Robutel on-ramp towards A-10 West (Closed at 8 p.m.)

We invite you to refer to our map to see all the access and exit ramps that will be closed while these works take place, as well as the detours that will be set up. As well, the speed limit on the network will be reduced to 50 km/h.

Please note this work may be postponed due to weather conditions. A notice will be posted on our blog (champlainbridge.ca) on Friday at 3:30 p.m. according to the weather forecast to advise road users whether or not the work will take place.
