Honoré-Mercier Bridge – Bridge and lane closures April 2 to 7, 2015

The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to announce that the Honoré-Mercier Bridge will be subject to alternating lane closures in both directions over Easter weekend from 10 p.m. on Thursday, April 2 to 6 a.m. on Sunday, April 5. One of two lanes will then be open in both directions from 6 a.m. on Sunday, April 5 to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, April 7. See below for details.

These closures will allow to continue work on the steel structure of the Seaway section in preparation for the rehabilitation of its concrete deck next year.

Drivers can use the Champlain Bridge or the Jacques Cartier Bridge as an alternative, since no major closures are planned there for the same period.

The Ministère des Transports du Québec will also be carrying out work on its section of the bridge. One out of two lanes towards South Shore will be closed from Thursday April 2, 10 p.m. to Tuesday April 7, 5 a.m. See below for details.

Honoré-Mercier Bridge – MTQ works : Complete Closure towards the South Shore

MTQ WORKS

The ministère des Transport invites the public to plan their trips safely by visiting www.quebec511.info before departure. This intervention might be shortened due to work progression or cancelled because of weather conditions.

From Saturday, February 21st, 2 AM, to Monday, February 23rd, 5 AM, both westbound lanes of the upstream bridge (towards the South Shore) will be closed to traffic. No traffic will be allowed towards the South Shore. Only both eastbound lanes (towards Montreal) will remain opened to traffic.

The ministère des Transport invites the public to plan their trips safely by visiting www.quebec511.info before departure. This hindrance may also be required on Friday February 27, 22 am at the Monday, March 2 , 5 pm , according to work progress .

This one way configuration will ensure road users safety in case of bad weather and will facilitate snow removal and de-icing operations that might be required during winter season. Indeed, these operations cannot be properly performed with contraflow traffic, because the width of the lanes is not adequate and safe for snow removal vehicles.

According to those circumstances, the most optimal and secure configuration for upcoming lane closures is the one mentioned above. The Ministère is aware of the impacts caused to traffic and thanks all road users and its partners for their comprehension.

This intervention might be shortened due to work progression or cancelled because of weather conditions. Other lane closures might be necessary for such work in the coming weeks.

The ministère des Transport invites the public to plan their trips safely by visiting www.quebec511.info before departure.
