Complete closure of the upstream part of the bridge - one lane will be open in each direction on the downstream part of the bridge
LONGUEUIL, QC, July 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to inform the public that the upstream part of the Honoré Mercier Bridge, which allows access to the South Shore (Route 138-West), will be completely closed to traffic on July 16-19, July 23-26, and August 6-9, starting Friday at 11:59 PM until Monday at 5 AM, all three weekends.
Traffic will be re-directed to one lane in each direction on the downstream part of the bridge (Route 138-East) for all three weekends. The flow of traffic will be very slow during these three weekends, and motorists are encouraged to avoid the Honoré Mercier Bridge during this period.
These closures allow for important repairs of the deck to be made, as well as the reinforcement of the steel structure of the upstream part of the bridge, which is the section that, under normal circumstances, leads towards the South Shore.
