Mercier Bridge: Major Detour to Access Bridge - Complete closure of ramp 2
(towards La Prairie) and one of two lanes (towards Montreal) on October 14

LONGUEUIL, QC, Oct. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) and the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) wish to announce that the access ramp to La Prairie will be completely closed to traffic on Wednesday, October 14, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Also note that the access ramp from La Prairie will be reduced to one lane from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on October 14.

Please remember that access to Mercier Bridge from Châteauguay (ramp 4) is also closed to traffic. Users coming from Châteauguay should continue to use the detour road setup from Highway 138 in place since June.

From Montreal, those heading towards La Prairie must take the exit ramp to Châteauguay (ramp 3), then use the Route 207 exit (Chemin Saint-Isidore) to return to Route 138 heading towards La Prairie via the access road connecting Route 138 and Route 132.

We encourage travelers to use other South Shore bridges and the transit system during this construction period.
