Honoré Mercier Bridge: A Single Lane Open in Each Direction on Saturday, November 19 From 6 AM to 6 PM

LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 17, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCIB) and the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to inform motorists that traffic on the Honoré Mercier Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction (towards Montreal and towards the South Shore) during the day on Saturday, November 19 from 6 AM to 6 PM.

Please note that Airlie ramp enabling access to the Honoré Mercier Bridge towards the South Shore from Airlie St. will also be closed during this period.

In case of bad weather, this obstruction to traffic will be rescheduled to Sunday from 6 AM to 6 PM.

The upstream bridge of the Honoré Mercier Bridge, namely the bridge that enables access to the South Shore (Route 138 West), will be completely closed to traffic during this period. Therefore, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, with one being against the current of traffic, on the downstream bridge (Route 138 East).

These closures will allow the delivery of material underneath the bridge, within the context of Contract B, of the Honoré Mercier Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

To follow the progress of this project, please visit our blog at: www.mercierbridge.ca.
