MONTREAL, Que. — Transport Canada has announce it will spend $120 million to fix Montreal’s Jacques Cartier Bridge.
The work will include a total renovation of the bridge’s deck. It will begin in April and last until October, then restart the following winter with completion expected in October 2002.
The Jacques-Cartier Bridge, which links Montreal to the suburbs on the south side of the St. Lawrence River, was first opened in 1930.
Last week, Ottawa and Quebec City announced plans to consider building a light-rail transit line across an ice barrier near the Champlain Bridge, which is west of the Jacques Cartier.
