Fermeture du pont Honoré-Mercier en direction Montréal

MTQ WORKS

Please take note of the press release (in French) below announcing the complete closure of the Honoré-Mercier Bridge towards Montreal, from Saturday, June 27th, 11:59 PM, until Sunday, June 28th, 1 PM. This closure is required for concrete work of the Monette Bridge, on route 138 east, in LaSalle. It might be postponed or cancelled due to weather condition or operational constraints.

During this period, one lane will be opened towards the South Shore.

Reconstruction work of the Monette Bridge will continue until August 2015. After those concrete work, paving and marking work will be needed, as well as the demolition of the temporary bridge.

Le ministère des Transports informe les usagers de la route que, dans le cadre des travaux de reconstruction du pont d’étagement Monette, situé sur la route 138 est au-dessus du boulevard LaSalle à Montréal, la fermeture complète du pont Honoré-Mercier en direction de Montréal sera nécessaire, du 27 au 28 juin 2015. Cette fermeture permettra de procéder au bétonnage du joint de raccordement entre le pont Honoré-Mercier et le pont Monette.

Entrave à la circulation
Du 27 au 28 juin 2015
Fermeture complète du pont Honoré-Mercier en direction est (vers Montréal), du samedi 27 juin à 23 h 59 au dimanche 28 juin à 13 h. Les usagers de la route pourront emprunter les autres traversées pour accéder à l’île de Montréal.
Cette fermeture pourrait être reportée en raison de conditions météorologiques défavorables ou de contraintes opérationnelles.
Les travaux au pont Monette se poursuivront jusqu’au mois d’août 2015. Après le bétonnage du joint de raccordement, il restera notamment l’asphaltage, le marquage, l’installation de glissières et la démolition du pont temporaire pour compléter les travaux.
De 2015 à 2017, près de 4,9 milliards de dollars seront investis par le ministère des Transports sur l’ensemble de son réseau routier, où près de 33 500 travailleurs s’activeront sur les quelque 1 900 chantiers à travers le Québec. Dans la grande région de Montréal seulement, plus de 17 300 travailleurs seront présents sur près de 350 chantiers. Afin de bien planifier vos déplacements et pour s’informer sur les entraves en cours et à venir, consultez la section Mobilité Montréal du site Québec511.info. Pour la sécurité des usagers de la route et celle des travailleurs, le respect de la signalisation sur place est essentiel.
