Île des Sœurs Bridge: concrete slab repair work planned over two weekends

LONGUEUIL, QC, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise road users that concrete slab repair work is planned on the île des Sœurs Bridge in anticipation of the coming winter season.

This work will take place over two weekends, from Friday at 11:00 p.m. to Monday at 5:00 a.m. Two lanes will be kept open to traffic in each direction during the day, but only one lane will be open at night towards the South Shore.

The work will take place from Friday night to Monday morning (see the detailed configuration below), on the weekend of October 26 and 27, and another weekend (date to be confirmed).

Traffic may be heavier to access the Champlain Bridge from the Turcot Interchange during this period, as well as to access Montreal by the A-15 from the Champlain Bridge.

Road users are encouraged to favour the Bonaventure Expressway to access the Champlain Bridge or island of Montreal for the entire weekend.
