Honoré Mercier Bridge: scheduled closures for the opening of Ramp 3 from 8 PM
to 5 AM

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 (Saint-Isidore Road)

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.
