SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PATH AND SAFETY ISSUES

All of these elements combined increase safety risks in winter.

Atypical Geometry

  • Length (2.7 km)
  • Narrow lateral clearence (from 2.5 m to 1.8 m in winter)
  • MTMDET standard: 3.5 m
  • Long and steep slopes (4.2%)
  • Tight turns
  • Enclosed (guard rails on either side)

Complexity of weather conditions

  • Unique, harsh and changeable weather conditions of the St. Lawrence River
  • Very wet, windy and changeable environment that is conducive to the unpredictable formation of black ice that affects the qualify of the path surface

Raised Path

  • Concrete slab (15 cm)
  • No roadbed material to insulate the path or minimize cooling
  • More affected by weather variations compared to a path on a roadbed

Risk of falling ice

  • High steel structures (sections 3 and 7)
  • Snow thrown from the traffic lanes
