Original Champlain Bridge Deconstruction | Work planned for this spring

5 May 2021

In the Île des Sœurs sector, the Nouvel Horizon Saint-Laurent (NHSL) Corporation began deconstructing the last span over the jetty in April and is continuing to deconstruct the piers and pier caps. The team is also starting up the marine equipment at the seaway dike and has begun preparatory work to deconstruct the bridge over the river with the removal of the permanent reinforcements.  

Over the river, NHSL will remove over fifty permanent reinforcements using cranes on the bridge deck and from barges. The goal of this work is to disengage the spans from the bridge before deconstructing them.
