Jacques-Cartier Bridge : Traffic for the week of April 21, 2014

Week of April 21, 2014

> No major hindrance to traffic planned.

 

*Important*  _This post is updated on a daily basis during the week before 4:30 p.m.   _The Jacques Cartier bridge is regularly open to one lane in each direction during the night from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. when traffic is low. The Sûreté du Québec, using traffic cameras, determines the timing of those closures depending on the traffic flow. This is recommended late at night for safety, as the Jacques-Cartier bridge does not have a central median. When traffic is heavy, such closures do not occur.

Jacques-Cartier Bridge : 2014 work plan

Numerous work projects under the bridge in 2014, but will not have a major impact on traffic.

Over the past two years, the entire Jacques Cartier Bridge has been repaved, including the approach ramps. In 2014, work will mainly take place below the bridge, on the piers and steel structure. This work is not expected to have a major impact on traffic, but will include regular night closures.

Also, as in past years, complete closures of the bridge from 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. will be required to carry out major repairs on the steel structure and to replace bearings.

What’s more, new automated gates will be installed at the approach to the bridge on the Montreal side, like those installed on the South Shore side, inciting motorists to avoid the central lane of the bridge when closed.

Finally, throughout May and June, work begun on the south section of the bridge’s bike path will be finalized to enable this section to be restored.

Follow the work!

We invite you to download our preliminary 2014 work calendar (french version only). This calendar is subject to change according to weather conditions and worksite progress, but gives a good indication of the weekends targeted for work on each structure. Work on our three bridges has been spread out over different times of year without any overlap.
