/R E P E A T -- Honoré-Mercier Bridge - cement work on the expansion joints of the La Prairie Ramp/

Closure of the La Prairie on ramp (Ramp 2) towards Montreal from
Wednesday, May 25 at 9:30 AM to Thursday, May 26 at 5 AM

LONGUEUIL, QC, May 24, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to announce the closure of the La Prairie on ramp towards Montreal from Wednesday, May 25 at 9:30 AM to Thursday, May 25 at 5 AM. This closing will allow for the cement work to the expansion joints of the new on ramp now under construction since the end of last March. The exit ramp to La Prairie will remain open to traffic.

Signage will indicate the detours for motorists to use during the period. To see the detour route, we invite you to consult the map towards Montreal - http://bit.ly/cefr3D. Traffic may be heavier between 3 PM and 7 PM, during afternoon rush hour.

Please note that repairs to this access ramp represent the last stage of the first contract begun as part of the Honoré-Mercier Bridge repairs. Currently, all the new pre-fabricated concrete slabs have been put in position. Over the course of the following weeks, it will be necessary to install the new expansion joints, undertake the cement work on all the joints, complete the post-tension apron, and pave and add the painted markings of the lanes.
