Steel reinforcement and painting work in April and May
The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would like to notify users that major reinforcement and painting work on the steel structure of the Jacques Cartier Bridge will take place in April and May. The work will be done during three weekend blitzes, on April 20 to 22,
April 27 to 28, and May 4 to 5, that will require major lane reductions in addition to the closure of the Parc Jean-Drapeau access ramp toward Montreal.
During these blitzes, a single lane only will be available in each direction, and the multipurpose path and sidewalk will close for alternating periods.
This work is being closely coordinated with our mobility partners and is part of the ongoing major repair program to extend the service life of the Jacques Cartier Bridge.
These planned closures are required to ensure user and worker safety during the work. JCCBI recommends that users plan their trips accordingly. Note that this work could be postponed because of unsuitable weather conditions.
For real-time information about JCCBI’s work, follow the Twitter accounts for each of our structures: @pontChampBridge, @pontJCBridge and @pontHMBridge. To plan their travel, users can consult the live traffic page of our website, which includes a dashboard with traffic cameras, in-progress road closures or obstructions, and the seven-day work schedule. Users can also get text or email alerts about major closures or emergency work.
