After the good news about some sections of the Turcot Interchange starting to open this week, Transport Quebec has announced Montreal construction slated for this fall. Five bridges around the island and the Lafontaine Tunnel will be undergoing repair work starting this autumn. The bridges include the Champlain Bridge, Mercier Bridge, Jacques-Cartier Bridge, Louis-Bisson Bridge and Pie-IX Bridge.
Although they will try to schedule the work off peak hours during the night and on weekends, many drivers will be facing a challenging time trying to get on and off the island. And there is more to add Montreal driver’s and commuters woes (exact dates have not yet been announced).
Montreal construction slated for this fall
• HWY 40 from Autoroute 520 to Lacordaire is being repaved.
• HWY 13 at Henri Bourassa will see lane closures due to REM work.
• HWY 10 from the South Shore will be undergoing work.
• HWY 13 North to HWY 40 ramp will close for work and the HWY 13 South to HWY 40 ramp will be closed until 2021. This will be particularly challenging for Laval drivers.
