LONGUEUIL, QC, Aug. 2, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise road users that trucks will be prohibited
on the Honoré Mercier Bridge towards Montreal during morning rush hour
from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., from Monday, August 5 to Friday, August 9.
This measure aims to ease traffic for drivers during morning rush hour
in the final week of the major work BLITZ on the Honoré Mercier Bridge,
which coincides with the end of the construction holiday.
Truck drivers are invited to use the new A-30 westbound to access the
island, as well as the other South Shore bridges during this period.
The ban only applies during morning rush hour, as the closure of the
A-20 East ramp for the A-15 South on the Turcot Interchange reduces
alternative options for truckers during afternoon rush hour.
Only one lane, 3 meters large, is open in each direction on the Honoré
Mercier Bridge until Monday, August 12, at 5 a.m.Trucks exceedingthis widthare already bannedon the bridge. During this work, road users are encouraged to avoid the Mercier Bridge
and use public transit.
The other South Shore bridges are also strongly recommended, as with the
end of the construction holiday, traffic will be heavier.
To follow our work, we invite you to visit www.mercierbridge.ca.
