LONGUEUIL, QC, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain
Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) wishes to announce that the contract for
the reconfiguration of the bike path on the Jacques Cartier Bridge at
the Longueuil approach was awarded to Les Grands Travaux Soter inc.
The work will soon begin for a period of approximately three and a half
months. During this period, cyclists can continue to use the bike path
on the bridge, but must use a detour path that will be in place to reach
St. Charles Street and Lafayette Boulevard.
"We are very pleased that we are able to proceed with this work this
year, and to provide a more convenient and efficient bikeway for the
residents of both the South Shore and Montreal", said Mr. Glen P.
Carlin, General Manager of JCCBI.
The work entails the construction of a bike path on the Longueuil
approach of the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Construction will entail the
demolition of the existing concrete and asphalt sidewalk, foundation
work, construction of a new bike path in concrete and asphalt, drainage
work, fence installation and lane marking work. This new path will be
about 3-4 meters in width.
