LONGUEUIL, QC, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain
Bridges Incorporated wishes to inform the public of the complete closure of
exit 57 N from Highway 15 South as of Friday, August 28 at 10 a.m. until
Monday, August 31 at 5 a.m., as well as the complete closure of exit 57 from
Highway 15 North as of Friday, August 28 at 7 p.m. until Monday, August 31 at
5 a.m. Road signs will inform motorists of the recommended detour roads to be
taken in each of the directions.
Heading North, motorists will have to take exit 61 (Atwater) on Highway
15 North. A detour road will be recommended in order to access Highway 15
South and to take exit 57 to access Ile-des-Soeurs.
Heading South, access will be made possible by exit 57. A detour road
will be recommended in order to access the Northern Point of Ile-des-Soeurs.
Motorists who miss exit 57 will have to take the detour via the South Shore
and follow the detour mentioned above when heading northbound.
It is important to note that the temporary ramp, joining Ramp 5 (access
to Ile-des-Soeurs by exit 57) and Traffic circle 1 (Claude-Robutel
intersection), will be permanently closed as of Friday, August 28 at 7 p.m.
During the weekend (Friday at 7 p.m. until Monday at 5 a.m.), motorists
coming from Ile-des-Soeurs who wish to access the Bonaventure Expressway will
have to take the detour road from Traffic circle 2 (Alexander-Graham-Bell
intersection), Highway 15 North and then take exit 60 to Highway 10 West.
However, starting on Monday at 5 a.m., access to the Bonaventure
Expressway for Ile-des-Soeurs residents will be possible directly from Traffic
circle 2 (Alexander-Graham-Bell intersection).
In order to offset the impacts caused by the closure of this temporary
ramp joining Ramp 5 and Traffic circle 1, we will be adding a temporary access
from the south to the north of the Island by the Ile-des-Soeurs Boulevard and
going under Viaduct Z (the Highway 15 viaduct crossing over the Highway 10
East ramp to Highway 15 South).
Access to this ramp will be possible from the traffic circle located at
the intersection of Place du Commerce Street and Ile-des-Soeurs Boulevard and
will grant access to the Bonaventure Expressway via Traffic circle 2
The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated asks that
motorists allow for additional travel time.
