Two major work blitzes will be conducted on the Champlain Bridge this spring. The work involves the installation of modular trusses under the bridge to compensate for the full load of the edge girders. The goal is to ensure user safety until the new Champlain Bridge opens. The work will be conducted from 10:00 p.m. on Friday until 5:00 a.m. on Monday during the weekends of April 30 to May 1 and May 7 to 8.
During these blitzes, four modular trusses will be installed from the bridge deck near Île des Sœurs, where the seaway is too deep for this type of work. Other types of maintenance work will also be performed. Other contractors and partners may also conduct work during these blitzes to keep additional lane road closures down to a minimum for users.
BLITZ 1: Weekend of April 30 to May 1 COMPLETED
BLITZ 2: Weekend of May 7 and 8 COMPLETED
