The construction of this temporary bypass bridge between Montreal and Île des Soeurs started in August 2013 and was completed in December 2014. The bypass bridge has the same number of lanes as the previous bridge as well as a wider bicycle path and a reserved public transit lane.
2014 is marked by the inauguration of the new Île des Sœurs bypass bridge, and consequently, the extension of the Champlain Bridge’s reserved bus lane.
This new bridge will also allow for the widening of the bicycle path on the Île des Sœurs Bridge and the removal of a traffic light operated in the afternoon on the A-15 North.
The bridge is no longer in service since October 2018.
