Obstacles to road circulation

Honoré-Mercier Bridge

Summer 2019 - Mercier Bridge

The Department of Transport is informing road users that it will complete repairwork at the Honoré-Mercier Bridge a week earlier than planned. As of July 14, two lanes per direction will be available again on the bridge. 
 
As a result, the rush-hour truck traffic ban ends this evening. Please note that the free truck crossing measure on Highway 30 remains for the beginning of next week: the end date will be announced shortly.

Traffic management– from June 26 to July 20:

One lane open per direction on the Honoré-Mercier Bridge.

Many mitigation measures will be put in place to facilitate traffic flow despite the work. Aware of the construction site’s repercussions on mobility in the area, the Department, in conjunction with its partners at Mobilité Montréal, is rolling out the following mitigation measures: 

Public transportation measures 

  • Extension of the business hours of the multipurpose lane on Highway 132/138: from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week, throughout the duration of the work.
  • The Exo service schedule for the Haut-Saint-Laurent and Sud-Ouest buses will be maintained and buses (articulated buses) will be added to ensure regular service during work.
  • Free public transportation from June 26 to 28, 2019. o Free trips on Exo Haut-Saint-Laurent and Sud-Ouest buses that cross the Honoré-Mercier Bridge.
  • Free train rides on the Exo4 Candiac line. o Users will be given STM fares when boarding at the Candiac, Delson, Saint-Constant and Sainte-Catherine stations.
  • Users will be given STM fares when disembarking from Haut-Saint-Laurent and Sud-Ouest buses that take the bridge.

Measures linked to trucking

  • Traffic ban for trucks with three or more axles during peak hours on weekdays: from 5 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., towards Montréal. o From 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., towards Châteauguay.
  • Free passage for class 2* vehicles (road vehicles whose height is equal to or greater than 230 cm) on Highway 30 from 4:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., towards Vaudreuil-Dorion from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., towards Brossard. 

Measures to entice people to changing their itinerary

  • Extension of peak hours at the Victoria Bridge: from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m., two lanes heading towards Montréal. o From 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., two lanes towards the South Shore.
  • However, heavy trucks remain prohibited on the Victoria Bridge.

The reconstruction of the Honoré-Mercier Bridge (provincial portion) is in the planning stages, as indicated in the 2019–2029 Québec Infrastructure Plan. Until this major project is completed, further interventions are expected to maintain the infrastructure operational and safe.
