Experience the Jacques Cartier Bridge Multicolored Passageway!

Pilot urban art project on the multipurpose path

veduta-angloThe Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (PJCCI) invites you to walk, run, or bike to check out the multicolored passageway at the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Urban art is on display starting August 17, with the installation of a pilot project on the multipurpose path on the west side of the bridge.

The Veduta project, the brainchild of Quebec artist Stéphane Leclerc, aims to turn crossing the bridge into a dynamic, full color visual experience. The project will be installed at the main section of the bridge, between Montreal and Saint Helen’s Island. Access is free—all you have to do is cross!

This urban work of art will create a visually striking, modulated effect, transforming the space by attaching multicolored strips to the posts of the multipurpose path railing. If the pilot project is well received, similar works may be installed over a larger stretch of the path next summer.

The pilot project offers Jacques Cartier Bridge users the chance to reconnect with and rediscover this iconic Montreal structure.

The artist: Stéphane Leclerc

Stéphane Leclerc’s own journey has been a colorful one, combining art history and environmental design. He has a keen interest in public art and urban space planning—an interest he shares with students as a university professor.

For the artist, this project is a unique opportunity to change our vision of the simple act of crossing the bridge. “The appeal of the Veduta project lies in the ability to take a structure that’s already there and combine it with various phenomena interpreted through art history, to offer cyclists and pedestrians a totally new bridge experience,” says Stéphane Leclerc.

Veduta is an Italian word that designates a type of 18th century painting depicting cityscapes.

Take our survey!

Users are invited to take our online survey and share their comments and suggestions on this pilot urban art project.

Jacques Cartier Bridge – Full and partial lane closures

The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) announces that in order to carry out painting work on the steel section located above the St. Lawrence Seaway, Jacques Cartier Bridge will be partially closed during the weekends of August 22-23, August 29-30, and September 5-6, from Friday, 11 p.m. to Monday, 5 a.m. During this period, three out of five lanes will be closed in order to maintain one lane open in each direction. Traffic flow might be affected and users are invited to avoid this sector.

Full overnight closures

The painting work will also require several full overnight closures between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. These will take place on Tuesday, August 25; Wednesday, August 26; and Thursday, August 27. At that time, the Jacques Cartier Bridge will be completely closed to traffic in both directions.

These closures will ensure the safety of users and workers during the critical phase of the painting work on the steel section above the traffic lanes. The closures will also allow crews to install various equipment.

Please note that the work could be postponed due to weather conditions.
