/R E P E A T -- Honoré-Mercier Bridge repairs - Reconstruction of the Monette viaduct: opening of a temporary viaduct to the South Shore/

LONGUEUIL, QC, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to announce the September 12 opening of a temporary viaduct to provide access to the Honoré-Mercier Bridge from the borough of LaSalle to the South Shore. The opening of this temporary viaduct will allow workers to demolish and rebuild the current Monette Viaduct over the next year.

As part of the reconstruction of the Monette Viaduct, located at the northern approach to the bridge, the temporary viaduct will be an important means to alleviate inconveniences to motorists using the route. During the roadwork, traffic will detour over the viaduct in order to maintain the usual traffic flow to the South Shore while completely eliminating traffic on the Monette Viaduct.

Opening of the temporary viaduct should not cause significant inconveniences to motorists as the traffic will flow normally while permitting reconstruction of the northern approach to the Honoré-Mercier Bridge to the South Shore.

To follow progress of the project and to consult the map showing the location of the temporary viaduct, we invite you to visit our blog at: www.mercierbridge.ca.
