Active Mobility Live Network

Jacques Cartier Bridge | Multipurpose path and sidewalk open 24/7 as of March 18

With the arrival of Spring, The Jacques Cartier Bridge path and sidewalk are now open all day and night for active mobility users. However, note that the pedestrian tunnel at the Île Sainte-Hélène Pavilion (ISHP), which connects the sidewalk to the path, remains closed in compliance with the government’s pandemic-related distancing guidelines.  

The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) would also like to remind the public that there will be occasional night closures throughout the summer for different types of maintenance work. Please remember that it is essential to adhere to closure notices for safety reasons.  

As for the bicycle path on the Champlain Bridge Estacade, it will open to users starting mid-April, at the same time as the Parc Jean-Drapeau bicycle network. 

JCCBI invites pedestrians and cyclists to be cautious and courteous on the paths and to follow all safety instructions throughout the season.
