LONGUEUIL, QC, Aug. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain
Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the Ministère des Transports du Québec
(MTQ) wish to inform the public that closures have been scheduled for
this evening in order to proceed with the opening of the exit ramp
towards Châteauguay (Ramp 3) from 8 PM, this evening, until 5 AM in the
morning, with the following scenarios:
8 PM to 5 AM: Complete closure of the Airlie entrance
8 PM to 5 AM: Right lane closure and then left lane closure in the
southbound direction of the bridge for the removal of signage and to
mark the lines towards Ramp 3
A significant congestion is expected on Route 138 to the St-Pierre
Interchange towards Châteauguay from 8:30 PM to 10:30 PM and at the
Airlie entrance to LaSalle on the municipal system due to the closure at
8 PM to 11 PM.
10 PM to 12 AM: Opening of Ramp 3 to traffic, towards Châteauguay
11 PM to 5 AM: Complete closure of Ramp 2 towards La Prairie for the
installation of signage. A detour will be provided via Route 207
Note that, starting from September 1st, 5 AM,
there will be a left lane closure on Ramp 2 towards La Prairie to
prepare for the deck replacement.
We recall that the rebuilding of Ramp 2 (La Prairie Ramp), the last ramp
to repair during this phase, will begin in the coming weeks. The precise
start date and method of the work will be announced shortly. This work
is part of a first contract (phase A) granted out of two in the context
of a comprehensive rehabilitation program of the Honoré Mercier Bridge.
