CHÂTEAUGUAY, QC, March 17, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The ministère des
Transports du Québec wishes to inform road users that adding to
hindrances previously announced, both westbound lanes of the
Honoré-Mercier Bridge (to the South Shore) will be closed to traffic
between Friday, March 21st, 10 PM and Monday, March 24th , 5 AM.
Closures will be effective on following dates:
From Friday, March 21st, 10 PM, to Monday, March 24th, 5 AM;
From Friday, March 28th, 10 PM, to Monday, March 31st, 5 AM;
From Friday, April 11th, 10 PM, to Monday, April 14th, 5 AM;
From Friday, April 18th, 10 PM, to Monday, April 21st, 5 AM.
These lane closures are required for repair work of the structural
elements, under the bridge.
For the moment, only both eastbound lanes (towards Montreal) will remain opened to traffic.
This one way configuration will ensure road users safety in case of bad
weather and will facilitate snow removal and de-icing operations that
might be required during winter season. Indeed, these operations can
not be properly performed with contraflow traffic, because the width of
the lanes is not adequate and safe for snow removal vehicles.
According to those circumstances, the most optimal and secure
configuration for upcoming lane closures is the one mentioned above.
The Ministère is aware of the impacts caused to traffic and thanks all
road users and its partners for their comprehension.
These interventions might be postponed or shortened due to weather
conditions, operational constraints or work progression. The traffic
management might also be revised along the way.
Other lane closures might be necessary for such work in the coming
The ministère des Transport invites the public to plan their trips
