Mercier, Turcot Closures to snarl traffic
Written by Paul on November 9, 2018
New schedule for the Mercier bridge closures this weekend. It will be down to one lane in either direction from 2 am Sunday until 5am on Monday morning.
On Friday, the Jacques Cartier And Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) announced it will be closing the R-138 east (from Chateauguay direction) access ramp to the Montreal-bound Mercier Bridge on Friday night from 9pm to Saturday 5am.
The JCCBI says the closure is required to carry-out some minor repairs and maintenance work. There will be a detour via R-132 and Kahnawake Peacekeepers will have officers stationed on R-132 to monitor and direct traffic.
In the Turcot. The 136 West to the 20 West is now closed until Tues 5 am, so getting back from downtown will be challenging.
The 15 N to the Decarie North and the 20 East to the 136 East both close tonight at 10:30 pm. The 15 N will re-open Monday at 5 am, but the 20 will remain closed until Tues morning at 5 am.
A free shuttle will be available at rush hour between the Châteauguay bus terminal and Sainte-Catherine station on the Candiac train line.
