This page contains information about the work schedule for the Champlain Bridge deconstruction. You can also see how the deconstruction is progressing on our Live Work Site section, which shows images from cameras installed at strategic points at the site that will let you keep up with the work being done on Île des Sœurs.

You can also learn more about the methods to deconstruct the Champlain Bridge on this page. We will be providing more information about these methods in fall 2020.
