Champlain Bridge Lane Closures, Detours This Weekend

LONGUEUIL, QC -- The final major work blitz at the Champlain Bridge is scheduled for this upcoming weekend meaning there will be lane closures, detours and backed up traffic for those wanting to travel between Montreal and Brossard. The work is part of a three-leg series to install modular trusses under the bridge to support the edge girders and ensure safe passage for users until the new Champlain Bridge opens. The work will be done over the weekend, from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, to minimize the effect on traffic. Drivers are advised to plan their trips in advance and consider other itineraries in order to avoid the Champlain Bridge corridor as much as possible. Maps showing the closures and detours for the blitz are available online.
