LONGUEUIL, QC, July 23, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) wishes to advise road users that due to extreme weather
conditions, the opening of the lanes announced for Tuesday, July 24 at
8 AM, will be delayed to 8 PM on July 24.
The work took place at an excellent pace throughout the weekend, but the
downpour which began at 5:45 PM forced the contractors to revise their
work schedule. The goal is to reopen all lanes to traffic as soon as
possible, therefore weather conditions are being monitored very
closely. However, if current conditions persist, it will be very
difficult to finalize the work before 8 PM on July 24.
A constant update of the work will be provided on our blog (www.jacquescartierbridge.ca) in order to notify users as soon as possible regarding the opening of
lanes to traffic.
It is strongly recommended that road users plan alternate ways of
accessing Montreal and the South Shore during rush hour on Tuesday,
July 24. The metro (yellow line), buses, bikes or carpooling are
excellent options for avoiding the rush hour traffic when it may be at
The bridge's bike path will be open during the roadwork and remains an
excellent option. The Champlain, Victoria and Honoré-Mercier Bridges
and the Louis-Hyppolyte-La Fontaine Tunnel are also possible options,
but traffic at those locations will likely be heavy as well.
