TQ order: lighten load above Ville Marie
You may have noticed City of Montreal workers removing trees, concrete and granite from a park that sits atop the Ville Marie Expressway directly in front of the Palais de Congres.
Transport Quebec says they are taking precautionary measures after a report recommended alleviating the pressure above the expressway.
250 tons of material is being removed from Parc Jean Riopelle, the bulk of the repair work scheduled for 2013.
Transport Quebec says there is no risk to the public.
