RAIL LINE MAY TAKE TRAFFIC OFF MONTREAL BRIDGE

MONTREAL, Que. — The federal government, in cooperation with the Quebec government, is studying a new mass-transit line that would ease congestion on Montreal’s Champlain Bridge.

The preliminary study calls for running a light rail transit system along an ice control structure, which is about 100 meters upriver from the bridge.

The bridge and the ice structure are owned by the Federal Bridge Corp. Ottawa would provide up to $7 million to build the rail link.

The bridge links the Island of Montreal to Brossard, a suburb south of the St. Lawrence River.
