A major work blitz will be done on the Sainte-Hélène viaduct at the south approach of the Jacques Cartier Bridge during the weekend of August 12 to 13.

This blitz is required to replace expansion joints and waterproofing membranes and perform repairs on the concrete. The work will be done from Friday, August 11 (10:00 p.m.) to Monday, August 14 (5 a.m.). Detours via the local network will be set up.

Two other major work blitzes will be planned in September for repair work on the Mercier viaduct at the south approach of the Jacques Cartier Bridge.

This work is being closely coordinated with our mobility and public safety partners and is part of the major repairs currently being done to extend the service life of the Jacques Cartier Bridge and its approach structures. These planned closures are required to ensure user and worker safety during the work. JCCBI recommends that users plan their trips accordingly.
