LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise road users and the media that following numerous meetings with the AMT and RTL, several scenarios have been analyzed for opening the dedicated bus lane during morning rush hour towards Montreal.
In view of these options and their respective impacts, the Corporation would like to present these various scenarios to the Comité sur la mobilité des personnes et des biens dans la région de Montréal convened by the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ), to take place on Friday, in order to determine the safest, most favourable solution to implement during morning rush hour.
This meeting will also enable the Corporation to provide answers to its partners' questions regarding the work to be carried out on the girders.
It is important to note that the targeted girder, which has been isolated by limiting traffic, had not reached a critical threshold, and removing traffic has enabled us to ease the load it bears. The Corporation is committed to maintaining a strict level of safety. The priority work on this girder will enable us to complete the necessary reinforcement to ensure this high level of safety is respected. The bridge's safety has not been compromised.
Analyses and inspections will continue to take place throughout the work and will enable us to closely follow how the situation progresses. We invite you to follow this priority reinforcement work currently underway at www.champlainbridge.ca.
