Honoré Mercier Bridge: One Lane in Each Direction on January 19 and 20 at Night

Postponed Closure - New Dates

LONGUEUIL, QC, Jan. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to inform the public that traffic on the Honoré Mercier Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction (towards Montreal and towards the South Shore) at night on both Wednesday, January 19 and Thursday, January 20, from 10 PM until 6 AM.

We also wish to inform you that the two lanes will be opened at 5 AM towards Montreal for the rush hour. Only one lane will remain closed towards the South Shore.  

Please also note that the Airlie ramp enabling access to the Honoré Mercier Bridge towards the South Shore from Airlie St. will be closed during this period.

The upstream bridge of the Honoré Mercier Bridge, the bridge that enables access to the South Shore (Route 138 west), will be completely closed to traffic during this period. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, with one being against the current of traffic on the downstream bridge (Route 138 east). Traffic will likely be disrupted at night from 10 PM to 11 PM and in the morning from 5 AM to 6 AM.

These closures will allow for surveying work to be carried out in preparation for the second phase of the Honoré Mercier Bridge rehabilitation project.
