Left lane restriction for heavy vehicles on the Honoré-Mercier Bridge towards the South Shore

MERCIER, QC, Sept. 16, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l'Électrification des transports wishes to inform truckers that it will be forbidden to drive on the left lane of the Honoré-Mercier Bridge towards the South Shore. This temporary restriction will be in place on Wednesday September 21st at 4 a.m. and will be there for approximately one month.

Buses and recreational vehicles are not affected by this restriction.

This restriction is required to ensure the safety of workers under the bridge, as part of annual maintenance work.

Those interventions might be shortened due to work progress.

Between 2016 and 2018, about $4.7 billion will be invested by the ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l'Électrification des transports in the road network, and there will be about 2 100 construction sites throughout Québec. To plan your trips and find out about current and projected traffic hindrance, consult the Mobility Montréal section of the Québec511.info website. Respecting road signs is vital for the safety of road users and workers.
