MERCIER, QC, Aug. 24, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l'Électrification des transports wishes to inform truckers that it is actually forbidden to drive on the right lane of the Honoré-Mercier Bridge towards the South Shore. This temporary restriction is in place since August 22nd and will be there for approximately one month.
Subsequently, for approximately one month, it will be forbidden for truckers to drive on the left lane, always towards the South Shore. The signage will be adjusted.
