LONGUEUIL, QC, May 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and
Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the Ministère des Transports
du Québec (MTQ) wish to inform the public that traffic on the Honoré Mercier Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction
(towards Montreal and towards the South Shore) at night from Friday,
May 27, 10 PM to Saturday, May 28, 10 AM.
Please also note that the Airlie ramp enabling access to the Honoré
Mercier Bridge towards the South Shore from Airlie St. will be closed
during this period.
Due to the major work undertaken on the Champlain Bridge from Friday,
May 27, 11 PM until Monday, May 30, 5 AM, traffic may be particularly
difficult from 10 PM to midnight and in the morning, from 8 AM to 10
The upstream bridge of the Honoré Mercier Bridge, namely the bridge that
enables access to the South Shore (Route 138 west), will be completely
closed to traffic from Friday night to Saturday morning. Traffic will
be reduced to one lane in each direction, with one being against the current of traffic on the downstream bridge
(Route 138 east).
These closures will allow for steel repairs under the Mercier Bridge
that require fast intervention.
