Jacques Cartier Bridge : Setting of Automated Gates on the north side to Manage the Centre Lane

The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) wishes to inform the public of the installation of automated gates on the north approach of the Jacques Cartier Bridge in the South Shore direction beginning January 19, 2015.

These automated gates will ensure optimal and safe traffic flow when closing the bidirectional centre lane of the bridge towards the South Shore. This configuration is similar to the one used at the southern approach for the northbound direction that gave expected results.

It has been observed that certain motorists delay shifting lanes when accessing the bridge from the north approach and at the last minute move into the right lane when the centre lane is closed or operating in the counter flow direction. After consultation with traffic experts and the Sûreté du Québec, JCCBI wants to eliminate this high-risk situation.

The Jacques Cartier Bridge is made up of five lanes including the bidirectional centre lane, which is open during morning and evening rush hours, in order to facilitate traffic in both directions. Therefore, the bridge’s centre lane alternates directions (northbound or southbound) according to the flow of traffic. This lane is generally closed to traffic outside of rush hour times.

Road users are invited to use caution when approaching the bridge over the next few weeks. There may be traffic slowdowns following the initial operation of these barriers, until bridge users become accustomed to this new scenario.

View below a diagram of this installation.
