2 April 2019
The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to advise users that its bicycle and pedestrian network will gradually open for the 2019 summer season starting Tuesday, April 2. The multipurpose path of the Jacques Cartier Bridge will reopen to pedestrian and bicycle traffic on Tuesday, April 2 in the evening. The sidewalk will open in the following days once the cleaning operation is complete. The bicycle path on the Champlain Bridge Ice Control Structure will open to users starting April 15, at the same time as the Parc Jean-Drapeau bicycle network.
Note that excavation and repair work is underway on the access ramp of the Jacques Cartier Bridge toward the South Shore and will continue until April 30. During the work, the multipurpose path will remain open, but access to the park will not be possible via the access ramp. Once the path is open this spring, pedestrians and cyclists will only be able to get to Parc Jean-Drapeau through the Saint-Lambert locks (open starting April 15) or the Concorde Bridge.
JCCBI invites pedestrians and cyclists to show caution and courtesy on the paths and to observe all safety rules throughout the season.
